I originally called it "Promise Markup Language" in 2007.  It's the result
of many years experience:  degree in accounting, 20+ years of software
development, trading professionally with a Series 7, 63, 55, and 20 years
of studying the monetary system.

It's based on contract law, but separates and clarifies concepts for a
computer.  Human readable and provides a audit trail.


The slavery problem is huge and the above was designed to solve it
permanently on earth.  I, personally, identify and understand this:
Father stares at the hand and foot of his five-year-old, severed as a
punishment for failing to make the daily rubber quota, Belgian Congo, 1904
http://rarehistoricalphotos.com/father-hand-belgian-congo-1904/

The father in the above photo is sitting quietly pondering his options.  He
became a very good supervisor and was promoted at work.  Severing the hand
and foot of his 5 year old, creates a very obedient slave.  Middle
management was certainly rewarded for creating such productivity in the
workers.

The same occurs today in the IT industry.
