Our economic system is on the verge of its final collapse. This may be common knowledge, but few have dug so deep down the rabbit hole to find the deepest cause of this system's faillure: money is an undefined unit. It may be the universal measure of value, but the value of money itself changes continuously. In a world led by greed, competition, ignorance and neglect, this has led to a global ecological series of disasters and threats, of which climate change and the oil peak are the tips of the iceberg.

In the mid-nineties, a young Dutch student in Information Technology took upon him the task to redesign the economic system in such way, that the price should always equal the ecological or natural value. This basic design has led to the design of a new monetary unit, consisting of three dimensions or colors, each representing a unexchangeable aspect of nature. Usable in a world led by cooperation, transparency, recycling and energy-efficiency, colourcash is an all-in-one solution for individuals, organisations and small communities. The author reckons users of permaculture, transition towns, cradle-to-cradle and other holistic ways of life among its future early adopters.
