In transfinite economies, goods to be traded are not scarce. Gold is scarce, and is traded in finite economies; ideas may be duplicated endlessly and are thus suited to transfinite economies. Money is an efficient currency for finite economies, since there's just so much of it to go around. Reputation capital is a currency in transfinite economies.

Intellectual property is a system which tries to make ideas into scarce goods so that they can be traded in finite economies.
