Arthur Brock builds targeted currencies which shape the social dynamics of our emerging post-industrial economy. He has created more than a hundred designs for multi-currency systems and his software company has built and deployed dozens of those systems.
Arthur initially applied his Artificial Intelligence experience at GM, Chrysler, and Hughes, but later shifted his focus to building intelligence into social architectures rather than computers. He established student-run schools and award-winning employee-run businesses, and discovered that the engines that power these organizations rely on specific patterns of incentives and feedback. He unlocks the secrets of people's Social DNA and the critical role of currencies in programming these patterns.
Arthur’s designs include currency systems for: collaborative scientific research, sustainable fishery management, corporate compensation plans, employee stock options, community-based economic development, business barter and exchange, triple-bottom-line trade credits, open source software development, customer loyalty programs, water rights, recirculating gift certificates, community service, employee performance management, arts & culture development, efficient resource sharing & management, and community & environmental impact assessment.
