economy: what are financial systems good for?

what we are doing

We know that the value of fresh air and clean water and safe societies are very rarely considered in economic modeling and that the destruction of these are considered 'externalities'. We pay more than we think is just, for the services of bankers who have proven themselves unworthy of keeping . Will what is 'worth' paying for ever catch up with what is being paid for? Which financial services, such as free-interest loans, are worth keeping and which ones are not? Who and what can assist with the segue to a new international currency that can be traded throughout the world?
