I’m really struggling to put together a viable economy for my story I think. I’m using script and some variants but, I didn’t make the script universally valued. I made it so, for example, script from a guy who works for a hospital is more valuable than say the script of someone who works at a grocery store. Should I make it universal in its value or would it be more interesting to leave it how it is now? I originally intended for the resources that back the script to be the services the company that issues the script provide. I added in a premium version too but, made it universal in its value and hard to get for most people. It can also be spent anywhere, unlike regular Script which is usually restricted to the issuing company or its partner companies. The final currency I put in is called NCT, or Network Connection Time, so its literally time. It’s used to access things like the internet and entertainment services or can be spent on things like emergency services at an increased rate. I also made it trade friendly with poor citizens trading it to less poor citizens for script because only script or premium script can buy things like food or pay the rent bills. I feel like I’m doing this wrong or backwards maybe. Do you guys have any advice on this one? I get the feeling it should just be backed by some random resource like gold from the olden days or oil how it is now in some places and made it universal. Should I? I mean it’s dystopian and the corporations control all the natural resources anyway.
