rCredits are intended as the basis for the Common Good Economy -- a democratic, community-centered economic system that puts people and planet first.
Together as a community we have the power to issue credit for our own use as a medium of exchange. It is our promise to accept rCredits that gives them value.
Governance by the people is essential for a just society.
B. As a responsible participant in the Common Good Economy:
As long as I can spend my rCredits easily or exchange them easily for US Dollars, I will accept them without limit as payment for my goods and services. I will exchange rCredits for US Dollars only if I cannot spend them easily.
I will accept rCredits from members of any Common Good Community in good standing. Once my geographic area becomes a Common Good Community, in the event of a cash flow crunch I will back rCredits up to my average balance over the past six months.
Whenever I exchange rCredits for US Dollars or vice versa, I will exchange them one for one, and I will price my goods and services the same in rCredits and in US Dollars.
I understand I will receive some rCredits from the community as Incentive Rewards that I can spend but cannot cash out. If I stop participating (or if the system ends) within 6 months of receiving my first rCredits or before the community has enough revenue to cover the Incentive Rewards, I will immediately give back whatever amount of Incentive Rewards I have received (while keeping any rCredits I received from other participants).
I promise to maintain a high level of honesty, integrity, and ethics in my dealings with other rCredits participants and with the community (including the rCredits system itself). When there is a dispute, I will follow the Dispute Resolution Process and will honor its outcome.
I agree to participate responsibly in managing the Common Good Economy to the best of my ability and as my life circumstances allow, including:
