An economic system based on social contracts

Will you survive the Great Stagflation?
SORA is a new hyperlocal economic system designed for Post-Capitalism
Update March 2020: The Great Stagflation begins as predicted, courtesy of the corona virus!

No Money? No Job? No Problem!

SORA is based on the real value of the actual goods and services relative to each other and not to fiat money. Ecommerce won't work without credit card or cashless payments, but SORA can.

Crisis-ready. Works in all conditions.

SORA allows both money and barter transactions, allowing you to buy and sell whether people have money or not. It only fails when society itself fails.

Kiss Total-Uncertainty Goodbye

SORA uses Plato's Law of Social Cycles  to predict things. [Update March 2020: We were able to predict the crisis year, but we were around 1 year off. So there will still be uncertainty, but not as much as before.]

The negroes on the coast of Africa have a sign of value without money. A certain merchandize is worth three macoutes. Another is six macoutes. Another is ten macoutes. The price is formed by comparing all merchandizes with each other. They have therefore no particular money, but each kind of merchandize is money to the other.

Montesquieu, Simple Spirit of the Laws
From a Paper Clip to a House
From no value, to high value, because value is in the eye of the beholder.

People were able to use Craiglist to trade paper clips for things of higher value. SORA scales this system so that companies can get rid of their idle value and convert them to higher and active value, with or without finance.

Real Free Trade
Made possible through multilateral socio-economic Singularity and moral sentiments.
Works with pen and paper and avoids blockchain

All the data is then compared by ISAIAH  in order to create a match of supply and demand through pool clearing.

Under a regime of bilateral clearings, each country has free access to the trade and raw materials of those other countries which are its customers. Under Pool Clearing, access to trade is universally free.

Everything in an economy, all in one place
SORA is a complete  economic system made up of different apps and APIs that work online or offline
The main app, a money-and-barter system for both local and foreign trade inspired by
A system for medical services and treatments for people without money
An apprenticeship system for learning and employment
A relief distribution system that can work offline
A moneyless public transportation system
Analytics for the data generated by the SORA system, inspired by the Bloomberg terminal. Connected to Social Banking  and Social Fairtax

Designed For Humans Anywhere

SORA is not just supposed to be able to work without electricity, but also on human colonies on other planets, because its main engine is human desire
A Great Idea
SORA was selected in the Top 20 of the ASEAN's Next Great Idea contest in 2016 out of 400 startups in Southeast Asia

2008 Financial Crisis

The Great Recession, Food Crisis, Oil Crisis, Eurozone Crisis, and Arab Spring explode


2012-2015 Research

Juan reads Adam Smith's works as a solution to the Financial Crisis. He consolidates it into SORAnomics which predicts an economic anomaly by Q1 2018, and gets rejected by journals.


2016-2019 Startup

SORA is created as a startup to implement SORAnomics, with a 10-year sprint. The 2018 economic anomaly turned out to be the Bitcoin crash and the February stock market correction

2020 Theory

Publishing of the draft sciences of Superphysics and SORAnomics to explain the principles behind the Great Stagflation, which is predicted to occur after the Q1 2018 anomaly
The model predicted a 2019 crisis based on Clinton getting the most popular votes (which really did happen). Trump simply delayed the crisis years by a few months, at the cost of making it stronger. In addition, the Corona virus is called 'Covid-19' and not 'Covid-20'.

2021-2027 Implementation

Implementation of the SORA apps for various use-cases to meet the disasters from the Great Stagflation and Global Warming

2028-2030 A New Science

Gathering of data and consolidation into the proper version of SORAnomics by publishing results showing SORA's performance during the crisis, with the goal of establishing Hume and Smith's theories as a new science, just as Newton's Physics was proven by Haley's comet long after his death

2030s Social Public Offering

Sell shares to SORA users with the most grain value,in order to jumpstart Superphysics  which is the mother science of SORAnomics

Unlike an IPO where investors have a lot of money, but possibly no skill in the industry, our social public offering or SPO is for our users that have very little money but a lot of skill. The proceeds will be used to fund a spacetime-based propulsion system based on David Hume's ideas on space and time, as an alternative to the current fire-based propulsion which is caveman technology, so that we can scale beyond the planet
Outer space

2040s onwards Superphysics

The resources from the SPO will be used to experiment with Superphysics  to get out of this planet faster and cheaper than Newtonian rockets. Superphysics then will split up into 'real' sciences, dropping its pseudo-science tag, just as Copernicus' ideas were pseudo-science until they were proven by Galileo and then formalized by Newton.

I very much like this work: A Research Proposal For The Formalization Of The Science Of SORAnomics And The Establishment Of A Social Resource Allocation System

Prof. Dhanjoo Ghista (University 2020 Foundation)

I believe it is developing into a worthwhile project.

Prof. Gavin Kennedy, a world expert on Adam Smith

I see enormous potential in SORAnomics

It's a nice idea that I may use to a certain degree. SORAnomics does seem complex enough to represent reality, and we are slowly drifting to new system.
