The bulk of financial transactions in G20 economies happen between:
- Corporations (B2B)
- Corporation and citizen (retail - citizens pays corporation, wages - corporation pays citizen)
- Corporation and state (taxes - corporation pays state, state funded projects - state pays corporation)
- Citizen and state (taxes - citizen pays state, pension/welfare - state pays citizen)
We could also try to build momentum within our organizations towards this. Companies that commercially benefit (however indirectly) from free software could set aside some money annually for donations. The beneficiaries could be decided by a poll within the company. After all, this is also part of CSR. Plus it will make for good PR copy.
