This is a public license that provides permission to share and adapt this manuscript within specific boundaries.

With the CC BY-SA 4.0 license, not only can this manuscript be shared without requiring there to be a paywall - something that is meant to streamline its accessibility as a resource for poverty relief - but it can also become a powerful point of collaboration and entrepreneurship. The public manuscript of Make Money Better can be at the root of a branching set of future editions and derivative works, allowing editors, artists, mathematicians, economists, activists, policymakers, and others to use this material in many ways across different media.
The "Share Alike" portion of the CC BY-SA 4.0 License means that any reproductions and adapted works must then carry the same kind of license themselves, being similarly accessible and modifiable. The "Attribution" portion of this license means all future contributors must themselves also be attributed in any subsequent adaptations that build upon their work.
This license allows for commercial use, and I hope that this can make it legal and lucrative for communities to perpetuate the presence of free and accessible materials for combating poverty. For example, anyone can choose to print physical copies of Make Money Better and its adaptations, and they may legally charge for the printing and transportation involved while even making a private profit within the scope of this license. Charitable organizations may also feasibly sell this material as a flexible fundraising tool. All derivative works and copies of the manuscript must themselves retain a compatible license and correct attribution as this commercialization happens. The public can then copy and share any added and modified content without cost as well as build upon it and sell it themselves. While this manuscript can be shared widely and for free, it can also provide interested communities with many meaningful financial opportunities.
It's important to note that any payment for a copy or adaptation of this manuscript will most likely go towards the immediate seller and their operating costs, as there is no licensing fee for the original work of authorship. Unless a seller specifically affirms and verifies whether their proceeds are going towards worthy causes and charitable work, it's safest to assume that any charge for this material is probably private income. I encourage buyers to be discerning and to pay primarily for the community empowerment that comes along with this kind of entrepreneurship and fundraising, knowing that the original manuscript can always be accessed online, free of any cost.
It is also important to note that Make Money Better is being released while it is in an early-access state. It is currently text only - without diagrams, equations, or cover art - and the text itself is likely to be changed significantly within future editions and adaptations. The purpose of this early release is to introduce the basic concepts behind Regenerative Currencies as soon as possible so that new strategies for relieving poverty can save lives more quickly, so that proactive solutions for protecting natural systems can preserve irreplaceable forms of ecological value, and so that many of the escalating economic consequences of inflation and financial inequity can be counteracted sooner than might otherwise be possible.
