Abstract for: Dynamic Conservation of Money

Money is an information flow often mistaken by a cash material flow, even coins or bank notes do not have value by themselves but by the information written on their faces or face value. The conservation of information flows is different than the conservation of material flows, because System Dynamics’ software designed to preserve material flows, does not automatically conserve information, thus money preservation requires coflows. The purpose of the paper is to present the design of sustainable financial policies which requires money conservation to last, because structure determines, but money sustain, behavior. A model of swapping stocks illustrates the use of money conservation to design policies for future stable improvements. Key Words: money, information, conservation, future, swapping, coflows
