Abstract:

At the beginning of the 21st century, the three most important concerns in the developed nations are remarkably convergent -- unemployment, the environment, and community breakdown. Because we will have to live with these issues for the foreseeable future, only a long-term structural approach can successfully resolve these problems. Community and Money is about how community currencies could contribute to tackling all three problems. Through a combination of theory, practical implementation, and personal interviews, Mary-Beth Raddon offers a guide to some very attractive alternatives to traditional currency transactions.
