What is trust?
The belief you can reliably predict how something will act and react in the future.
We learn to build trust through observation, experience… our gut.
But we don’t have time to establish trust with everyone…
So we manufacture trust.
We use tools like Contracts, committees, currencies, rules, laws and votes to Build governments, banks and business.
We trust these centralized intermediaries... so we don’t have to trust everyone.
This in turn has allowed us to simplify complexity and accomplish great things.
But what would happen if the tools we relied on to manufacture trust… stopped working?
What if we tried to fix the intermediaries.. but instead of getting better we kept having the same problems...
To change things we would have manufacture trust in a different way…
This trust machine... would be hard to imagine… but if it worked we could trust everyone and every interaction... In a way we never had before..
And if it did work what would happen next would be totally different than anything we have seen before..
Soon we would see money without banks or governments.
New businesses would be formed addressing the most pressing problems and the most profitable.
New millionaires and billionaires would be created and new companies would materializing from seemingly nowhere.. to change everything...
Does it work?
