Here’s a website called “Rolling Jubilee“:

A bailout of the people by the people

Rolling Jubilee is a Strike Debt project that buys debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, abolishes it. Together we can liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal. Debt resistance is just the beginning. Join us as we imagine and create a new world based on the common good, not Wall Street profits.

I fancy this is a little taste of how economics might be done in heaven. Trade will still happen, but everybody will be laboring to out do one another in generosity born of the certainty of God’s love instead trying to get as much as they can for themselves out of fear of God abandoning them.
