Say the cost of warp drives decreases in 200 years and the optimum size for a space ship is 10,000 people, about the size of a cruise ship. Say there is a Baptist colonizing project in the works. It will be a one way trip and you can buy in. There will be sufficient fuel to explore several known planets that appear to be earth-like and should support a colony. What sort of economic system should the colony start with? What will you use for a medium of exchange? Why? I ask because all discussions of money systems seem to end up with the system we used 2000 years ago being the best. Does anyone propose that some of the fuel and equipment be replaced with a half ton of gold coins so that you can have Bible approved money?
