Local Economy & Community Currency Event

What can we do together to support the local economy?
What's the value in developing a Tooting community currency?

Many local businesses are in direct competition with national chains, the internet and large suburban shopping centres. When 'big business' wins, another local shop closes or a small business goes bankrupt.

If you, like us, are concerned about the local economy and wish to talk to other like minded people our Local Economy & Community Currency event on Nov 1st might be just for you! We will be discussing how to strengthen our local economy, build new relationships, and how we spend our money. We will ask if we want a thriving local economy, or are we happy with our money going elsewhere? Do we want extended supply chains or short ones? How would this benefit us? Would a community currency help?

Venue: Mushkil Aasaan, 222 Upper Tooting Rd 7-9 pm.  All Welcome.

Jct: Sure, cash buy-in local currencies are good chips but so are time buy-in Ithaca Hour $10 bills. Why not use both features? Let people buy-in with their time like at timebanks and let them buy-in with cash for a premium too. Use both bases for collateral for your chips!!! By connecting to the Time Standard of Money, you can trade with timebanks all around the world. In 1999, I paid for 39/40 nights in Europe with a timebank IOU for a night back in Canada worth 5 Hours which I registered at my own personal online P2P timebank account at my facebook page listing my Offers, Wants, Hours Given, Hours Received. I'll take yours if you'll take my IOUs for time. Good ID is all that's need to qualify for the underground economy. Find UNISET UNILETS.
