FCR Financing

A Federal Credit Receipt (FCR) is a temporary placeholder for a Treasury obligation during its negotiation.  All aspects of monetary, taxation, and debt repayment are negotiable.

In the simplest case, a bond-owner might trade their bonds for a revenue stream deriving from a City's water system.

The above provides infrastructure capital with very low cost of funds.

Update to the data structure

Someone suggested this and I agree.


Break the units and denomination into two 'events'.  So, we would have:


I Offer 100
My Offer-units $
My Terms 'plane ticket to BKK'
His Terms 150
My Offer 130
He Agrees.

The event granularity works.


That brings the data structure down to 5 columns:
EventID (GUID or similar)
TransactionID (GUID or similar)
CommerceID (user defined)
Description (text)
TimeStamp (date time)


Edit: I forgot the EventType column, so 6 total.

Andrew Brown Monday 10:00 AM: Andrew Bransford Brown will explain how to a) Retire the national debt, and b) finance infrastructure/economic projects. Lakeland, Florida.
Andrew Brown I don't believe in holidays. This will continue every day of the week until a formal announcement is made on television.
Andrew Brown I'll preface this by saying: Contrary to popular belief, USD is an "asset-based currency".
Andrew Brown Sorry for the late start. Someone did not want this meeting to begin at all and took extraordinary steps to prevent me from being here.

Andrew Brown USD is an "asset-based currency":
Treasury bonds, notes, and bills are a debt from the perspective of the Treasury, Congress, and general population of the United States, however, they are an asset to those who own them. The obligation is a structural component of the trust and faith of the US Government and is a core basis of the US dollar's value. Currently, income taxes are collected to maintain those obligations.

Andrew Brown USD is issued in when the Treasury creates new debt securities (bonds, notes, and bills). Since those are technically assets, USD is an asset-based currency. In 2008, rules were changed that allow the FED to issue USD in exchange for non-Treasury issued assets called Collateralized Debt Objections (CDO's). Both can be called "debt-assets", because they represent the future income-stream of interest and principal payments. Can USD be issued against other assets that are not time-based income streams (debts)? Yes.

Andrew Brown How to retire the national debt?
Is there a way to uphold the obligation and satisfy it, while eliminating tax liability? The answer is yes, and requires the introduction of a negotiable debt instrument known as a Federal Credit Receipt (FCR). The FCR represents the Treasury bonds, notes, and bills owed to a particular person or entity, removed from the secondary market, and held in custody at the Treasury. The FCR represents has no interest rate attached and ensures it is without encumbrances. The FCR is created when the Treasury debt is voluntarily placed into custody at the Treasury and retired. The FCR can then be negotiated for another asset deemed of benefit to the economy or infrastructure.

Andrew Brown Infrastructure and improving the economy:
Each FCR is individually negotiated between the debt-owner and a transjurisdictional commission, to include the Federal Reserve, Treasury, Congress, State legislature, and local authorities (County Commission and City Council, for example). If the FCR is not redeemed for another asset within 1 year, a new Treasury bond is issued.

Andrew Brown Financing and/or money supply:
The FCR can either be used as collateral for a loan, or the Federal Reserve can issue currency against the FCR and/or asset(s) the FCR purchases. The purchased asset(s) might be land, corporation, derivative representing the income-stream, or other derivative representing an asset delivered over time.

Andrew Brown The above plan provides each State with up to $1,000,000,000,000 (trillion) to build infrastructure or improve the economy. Potential projects might include high-speed rail, driverless-car cities, intra-state stock markets, remediation and improvements, etc.

Andrew Brown I'll wait for questions/comments here.

For those familiar with the Promesa Act, one will see similarities with a more distributed, transparent, and accountable structure.
