I predict that Apple will introduce their own AppleCurrency ONE year after they introduce ApplePay.
Apple has created a shopping system of products where everything is connected. The problem for Apple is that the demand they create is bigger than what Apple can provide with products (money paid for complimented products to Apples products and the culture connected to Apple is enormously large).
The revolution should be led by icon brands as Apple. Below the surface our economic system is questioned and is not stabile enough. It’s only a matter of time before a major corporation creates its own currency.
AppleCurrency can be an offline currency with real coins. The coins can have the legend Steve Jobs face, further the shape of the coins can be as their Apple logo (with the bite).
Digital it can be used to buy products on Apple.com, Apple Store etc but also in other online shops.
What is the point when you can pay with ApplePay anyway?
Money makes money and Apple could make, control and increase their profit. AppleCurrency could change the world by being a powerful financial system that makes the world spin around the Apple.
Yesterday we sent our first newsletter with our new partner webpower.se. They work with marketing automation and are by far a strong power in their field.
Back in 2006 Web Power sponsored my lecture in Amsterdam at a seminar where Chris Anderson was the key note speaker. Back then I had the pleasure to meet the founders of the company, today I have the honor to work with their Swedish dream team.
Thanks to Web Power for all the great help with the newsletter, read our newsletter in Swedish (Google translation into English). We welcome Web Power as our new partner.
I wish my employees would get into more trouble, because it shows they are on the lookout for opportunities to improve themselves or company operations.

Thanks to Pam for sending this great article.
Over the years I had the honor to get to know Simon Anholt. I always got a sense that Simon got a IQ gift, that could have an effect on the world. After watching his amazing Tedtalk that got over one million views I understand that he is now making that good change that I believe he is here to contribute with.
Watch Simon Anholts Tedtalk. In this speech is Simon elegantly pointing out: Good is the new way of looking at the world!
Policy advisor Simon Anholt has dreamed up an unusual scale to get governments thinking outwardly: The Good Country Index. In a riveting and funny talk, he answers the question, ”Which country does the most good?” The answer may surprise you (especially if you live in the US or China).

I hope Simons next book will be named: From Bad To Good.
