Chapter 1 Basic Money Understandings: Introducing the Importance of the Role of the Community of Users This is the first in a series of twelve articles that are an attempt to gain a more complete understanding of how our money works. It has been found that the community of users of a money system has an important role in money creation and operation.

Following the edict that we don't concentrate on what is wrong, but on creating something that serves those of us who use it, and promotes providing what we need and want, instead of profit, we create a new system, and let the old one go its own way.

We will find that it functions in very different ways, according to the way money is organized.
