Micro Economic Zones

Micro Economic Zones (MEZ)

A small (less than 10,000 people) fully autonomous, privately funded economic zone owned by its citizen shareholders that trades its surplus and is capable of closing its borders for years if needed. Uses its own internal currency to make adjustments, paying out profits annually as a tax reduction tool. (This is a concept I have been playing with. Advances in technology have made very small zones capable of being autonomous.)

QUESTION: What would be the base economic activities for such a zone? Obviously food production, but what else?

Some ideas…

Communication Systems


Vocational Training

General Store

Livery Services

Medical Care

Banks and Credit Unions

Academy for the Arts

Fabrication (Tech)
