A-B-C #TransActing: A Market of Values

Some general notes:

• We selected terms that would allow us to discuss relevant ideas and other key terms, hence the list of words in black (only suggestions, not prescriptive) after the glossary voice in red. Naturally, discussions will overlap and refer to each other (see also ...).

• We have some ideas of who could write about certain terms. Some of us have already volunteered (names in bracket). Please, choose terms that you feel enthusiastic about expanding on. Kuba, would you write about Indebtedness and related concepts? And we would love it if Neil C could write about Market.

• We decided that the idea of LABOUR will be distributed throughout the different voices. Please, keep this into account if you decide to write a section of the glossary. Similarly, it seems to us, TRANSACTING will be tackled under several terms, although it also has its separate definition. ALTERNATIVE seems also to be relevant to almost all terms.

• We understand definition in the widest sense of the word!
