My name is Brett Nelson and I am a computer programmer. At 13 years of age I had access to a computer and taught myself how to program them. Have done quite a bit of it over the years yet most of my work has been used to enrich others while for most of my life I have not had access to adequate health care or retirement benefits. Being an avid outdoor enthusiast and nature supporter I have seen that the current economic system is harmful to the environment and human beings. Leonid Hurwiz got the Noble Prize for Economics for showing us that "unbridled self-interest doesn't always lead to the greater good." From the work that he and his fellow scientists have done we now know that the problem is the lack of public knowledge or transparency of the economic system. The Labor backed open economic model will provide tools and information that participants will use to actively move from one system which is harming the earth and its people to another which works on cooperation instead of competition and openness rather than secrecy while moving the participants away from disposable consumption towards sustainability. We will give people the tools to create and participate in an economic system they can feel good about while separating themselves from economic flows that include corporate oil or military weapons profits or other types harmful economic channels. We will create tools that will support home based and small businesses so people can take hold of the steering wheel while on their own economic journey.

The money I am asking for is to support myself while developing the scalable web application tools and for renting the cloud based servers it will run on and to hire community activists and promoters to bring this idea to the people and recruit small businesses to take part in the new open green economy as well as helping people get their own personal green businesses up and running with individual web applications for their own businesses. I have been thinking a good deal about the labor backed economy for a couple of years now and am ready to present it to the world and make it fly.
