Chapter 14: Money as Measurement
Three illustrations were incompatible with the 2017 digital edition in English of We the People: Consenting to a Deeper Democracy. So the text was altered to be understandable without them.

Relating its own methods/ideas/concepts to those of mainstream management theorists and industry leaders would be good for sociocracy. In fact, I think it is crucial to the wider acceptance of sociocracy for two reasons:
Sociocracy is a governance method based on collaboration, self-organization, and distributed authority. It is designed for transparency, inclusiveness, and accountability. Democracy values freedom and equality but doesn’t have a governance structure guaranteed to ensure them. A Sociocratic Democracy uses the methods of sociocracy to achieve the values of democracy creating a practical and effective way to organize. This site is about sociocracy and the ways in which it can help democracy achieve its highest goal: freedom and equality for all, finally.
What you will find here
This site is a resource on sociocracy and democracy and the ways they support each other. It examines the principles and practices and the ways in which together they could better achieve their objectives. How would things get done in a sociocratic democracy?
