Perhaps we have both misunderstood each other?

I was arguing that there are no factors that support the idea that
every person produces the same amount of value per hour.

When two people agree to exchange X money for Y labor, that is a real
solution to a specific instance of how those people value things.

Local currency systems like Ithica Hours seem to embrace the evils of
paper money faster than national currencies.  The issuers of those
currencies inflate it to incent consumption as a social goal.  The
purpose of local currency is to make it hard to cooperate outside the
local hamlet.  Is this a goal you share?
