People have always traded with each other, using various ways to represent and store value. In complex urban and global capitalist societies, money encourages growth, accumulation, and new forms of wealth and power concentration. Community Currencies offer a solution for local markets deprived of or unserved by national financial policy. If successful, a Community Currency system can promote local projects and put them on the road to a hopeful and fruitful future.
