Share the Links To Community Currency resources

Money Is An Agreement
The list of links to community currencies is not intended to be comprehensive and exhaustive, rather it is a quick reference. I encourage you to add other links as more communities are creating complementary currencies as the next financial crisis nears. The problems with debt, taxes, price inflation, and capital controls are increasing rather than going away.  That is a systemic problem of the international monetary and national governance system dominating the World.

These are the reforms indicated as necessary by decades of study and centuries of experience.

Prosperity– Freedom From Debt Slavery
The Bromsgrove Group
Their aim is to make Money Reform a big issue – that is, to bring the debt-free money proposal into the political debate, and to put Money Reform firmly on the political agenda. We spread the message that the money system is unjust, that it can be reformed, and that this is urgent. We have the solution, we deal with the technicalities and we emphasise spreading the word and organising for change.

  1. Here’s another good LETS link – it’s the one local currencies use in New Zealand, but it’s active in about 30 countries: https://www.community-exchange.org/

    • RonMamita says:

      Yes, indeed!
      When searching to exchange value in something other than national currencies then CES and LETS directories are very helpful international resources. My thought, at the time, was that the database search on the BERKSHARES.org covers all that.
      Perhaps I will make an addendum to the brief post above, though the post is not meant to be the thorough resource for alternative trade.

      Thank you for the reminder, because all readers need to have many resources at their fingertips and not be frustrated with lack of information.
