General Statement On Exchanges

Exchanges are the practical application of moderatism. Exchanges serve as local chapters of The Moderates Club. Exchanges transition institutions and organizations; transforming the high energy operations of globalist corporations into the low energy, high information model used by Moderates.

Another way of looking at Exchanges is to see them as a soft technology for empower and expanding the middle class.

The public sector is transformed by transferring assets from the public sector to the private. Assuming jurisdictional authority over physical assets enables Exchanges to provide social goods and wean the world off the government teat.

​Exchanges are composed of between 3 and 15 persons. An Exchange is an economic unit or small group of persons committed to combatting greed. Moderates believe any product or service provided by the free market or public sector can be provided through a small group Exchange. Public goods such as policing and health care and education can be produced with the same facility as conventional goods and services.

​Exchanges can preferentially be registered as a charitable not-for-profit corporation. It may facilitate operations, for the time-being if operations are legitimized in the eyes of the state.

Every member of the Exchange owns one voting share in the Exchange. Common Shares allow the member to vote in elections and on policy initiatives and also to a share of the assets of the organization if it is sold. However, Exchanges are never sold or liquidated. Exchanges can be transformed in terms of their economic purpose, but Exchanges never become non-viable.

​Exchanges also issue Preferred Shares as a form of voucher-based currency. Preferred Shares represent the equity of the corporation and are issued based on the accumulated assets of the organization.

Moderates Exchanges are as varied as the goods and services people need. Exchanges grow through works-based ministries.
