In this article published in World Without War, D. R. Thompson proposes several ideas to replace the existing ideas and systems all of which support capitalism and benefit few. Thompson suggests creating a centrally planned, cooperatively managed, separate from federal government, transparent, and citizen owned Cooperative Central Bank that will finance BIG and infrastructure on which freedom and innovation will flourish. The author argues that BIG should replace social welfare and unemployment money so that people will have a choice to be employed or not. Thompson basis this argument on the fact that the developing technology is already replacing human work and the end result does not need to be poverty for the unemployed. For the financing of such an initiative, the author recommends money that will be taken from the physical infrastructure such as public lands and assets.
