Before we discuss how SMMCs should be designed we need to understand their purpose and function in a society. A SMMC is wealth producing (profit making). It generates and distributes wealth at the same time; these are its two main functions (Chapter 10). Thus SMMCs help members of a society progress toward the ideal state of plenty. Some people, including the authors, are questioning this narrow focus and argue that SMCCs should facilitate progress toward all four ideals. Section II briefly showed how SMMCs can do this. The change in focus from one to four ideals increases the opportunities for a SMMC, increases its robustness, and increases the number and variety of stakeholders that will support it.
