  • I hope that the social monetary experience in Uruguay can be reproduce in Portugal and then I hope I can study it 🙂 as I myself consider to be a researcher in business and economics inside my professional duties.

    I am trying to connect people and institutions here at least to reproduce the STRO methodologies if not national at least local and micro business level – call it a pilot project.

    Amazing experience, unbelievable simple , intuitve, thumbs up.

    I only wish to have more and more information about the degree of expected success in this experience in Uruguay and get as much knowledge possible about the C3 experiments in EUROPE too!

    I have a 5 degree in Economics and post-graduation in Financial and Monetary Economics.

    Best wishes,

  • This is the most brilliant set of ideas I’ve ever heard. Thank you for sharing them.
