Franz Nahrada:

In some distinction to Circular Economy the term "Kreislaufwirtschaft" in German refers to all kinds of economic activities. The element of intentional support and mutuality between economic / social actors is essential. Cycles of Mutual Support can be mediated by a local or group exclusive exchange medium, or they can be mediated by intention and feedback loops and thus become an important element of Demonetisation.

A very basic form of these cycles existed in traditional societies, for example in the habitual way to feed begging monks in Buddhist countries. One could argue this was a non - contractual way of living out imaginary or factual synergies between cultural and material creators.

If we could model and appreciate the benefit of a particular function in the cycles, it would help us to call for support. Crowdfunding, Sponsoring, Donating, Community Spupported Everything are some monetary forms that could be increasingly replaced with mutually stabilizing agreements that reflect the material optimisation potentials in the flow of resources and human efforts.
