The Economics of Altruism - A System to Reward Generosity, not Selfishness

"We are called to play the good Samaritan on life's roadside, but that will be only an inital act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jehrico road must be changed so that men and women not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make they journey on life's highway. True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring."     Martin Luther King, Jr.

Designed to encourage the positive, caring side of human nature, Altruistic Economics assumes that people's wellbeing is related to that of their friends. Like classical economics, it assumes that people maximise their welfare. Unlike classical economics, everyone's well being is uniqely dependent on their sympathy for other specific individuals, so that our self-interest is counter-balanced with concern for the welfare of friends.

In Altruistic Economics, wealth is not dependent on what one has accumulated for oneself, but by how one's actions have affected the wellbeing of other people - by the healthiness of one's relationships.

Altruistic economics has many innovative features, such as a multiple value system allows all parties to a transaction to express their feelings using independent value measurements, avoiding the damaging process of fixing a single value as a price and thus removing pressure to hide information. Since it is non-zero sum, it allows proper representation of win-win transactions and so allows its users to get away from win-lose interactions.
