Surely.

What this means is that assets — technologies, food and other resources — are backed by financial instruments like bonds, but these have many limitations, namely in how they are structured. For example, munis have suffered greatly with huge swings in real estate and with rate fluctations — towns like Detroit are glaring case studies. So, if we protect the assets by tying them to structures that can actually account for changes/shifts in the local economy, then we can avoid major fallout, and instead create new value streams based on the returns to local communities, not just a select few ‘hidden’ investors.
