Salt Spring Island’s Community Currency

Title: Beautiful Money — Salt Spring Island’s Community Currency
Video posted 24 Aug 2016

An island near Vancouver, B.C. has designed its own form of currency.
Salt Spring Island’s paper dollars and coins look and feel beautiful.
For the Island’s tourists, they’re genuine souvenirs.
Michael Contardi, President of the Salt Spring Island Monetary Foundation, explains that they’re widely accepted by local businesses and banks, and easily redeemed. They’re purchased using national (Canadian) dollars and are spent at many businesses which accept them, including grocery and hardware stores.
Michael shows us the intricately-designed multi-color bills featuring local artists’ work on the back, and historical figures and wise quotations on the front.
He explains different models of local currency, as well as Bitcoin, an emerging revolutionary decentralized, non-politicized approach to money available via the internet.

    Today’s Headlines Mimic The 1930s – Great Depression

    We see a worldwide economic disaster looming and the institutions refuse to heed our alternative solutions.
    Prepare for the market collapse.
    Indeed, institutional governance have their policies that guarantee the future emergency call (press conference), and surely they expect their emergency response teams to solve the emergency. In other words they cause the problem by design, and expect the clueless citizens to accept their word that their solution is best as they implement their pre-planned reforms and more central authority.
