LifeCredit


Following the recent developments of the social credit system in China, which is to be standardized on a nation-wide scale by 2020, we bring you ‘‘LifeCredit’’. A mini game that imagines a possible future in where a similar social credit system is run by a private company taking place in the UK.


 






What if your offline presence was being rated? Wait, it already is...






Score: 1289

Liu Han, a citizen and journalist in China, was recently banned from booking a domestic flight ticket as he was on a list of untrustworthy people. This also excluded his kids from being able to apply for private schools and him from buying property. 

Every Chinese citizens is being assigned a social credit score, a rating that is based on their offline and online behaviour and actions.



Are western societies exposed to similar systems?

British citizens are familiar with credit checks, which are based on financial information. The most known social-like scores which can be experienced in western societies take place through online platforms. For example, when rating services or sellers on Amazon or when rating passengers and drivers on the Uber app. Here consequences also occur when your score becomes too low, other users and customers might refrain from using your services or servicing you.
