What about state budget?  

Even a little village has own budget for financing local infrastructure projects. What about ASGARDIA's state budget? Laws and decrees on state budget? How does national currency look?

A controversial topic, We hope it will be good

I will be majoring in Finance so I hope to see more development in this thread! Should be interesting.

Ещё политический строй с законами не придумали, о бюджете рано наверно.

More political system with the laws did not come up, the budget must sooner.

I think points/credits is the way to go, certainly shouldn't be physical currency. Budgets are all well and good for an established society, however in a startup situation you have to invest heavily in infrastructure and there are always over-runs which make a budget worthless - you can't simply stop because you hit the budget. Once established, you can better estimate (and therefore budget) costs required to maintain everything and upgrades can be budgeted based on past experience.

i think we could do something like startup from the games?

like they open a place for "donations" (in the beginning of course) and we make the "donations " for the inicial budget,the ideia is crude but is something that can work (well theres games that have failed in the beginning but they received donations of up to 500.000 to 1 million)

I know this is more in the distant future, but they say automation will cause unemployment. Will Asgardia have Learning Programs and Universal Basic Income to compensate?

I suggest that we start with a small crown-owned e-commerce operation with t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, phone and laptop covers, and other easy to carry items. When the business starts making a profit, then the Ministry of Finance will have an official budget to work with.

I saw the film "Passengers". Only 5000 passengers were at stake, only 5000 passengers were able to use the service of intergalactic vessel - to have a new life on the new planet. Asgardians are more than 500 000. Taking into the account the time of flight (more than 100 years) who will be luckiest men from us?))) We spoke concerning the state budget of Asgardia, how to create the profits. Can I offer to sell places in the first intergalactic vessel?)))

This is one of the hardest to get around, in my opinion. The UN could stump them with questions about taxation and welfare quite easily. I'm trusting the establishing government to know what it's doing though.

Currency can be purely electronic and with limited circulation only within Asgardia.The outside should be a gateway/Converter. But in my opinion it is necessary initially to exclude the possibility of "money earn money".

In Dr. A's statement made on 12 Nov 2106 "Asgardia(s) budget for 2017 will be made public in December (2016)" This has failed to happen. I believe that it will never happen and that makes me distrust the "leadership" of this project. I mean how hard is it to publish a budget? The only reason I can see why one would do that is to hide something (like president-elect Trump)

As this post is about the sate budget, I wonder why many of the posts talk about the currency or even non financial topics. That said I hope to see the budget soon, as funds a important to maintaining a nation.

Hi guys,
I've copied this directly from the Facebook group just for those members that missed it:

[Lead Admin] Hello! I touched base with Asgardia Official and was given some information about this. Due to a mistranslation, Dr. Ashurbeyli actually meant at the end of the fiscal year which ends in February. So, in my opinion, it should be published either by the end of February or March. As soon as we have a firm date, we will certainly pass along that information. :) Hope this clears it up!

I hope this helps going towards cleaning this issue up
