In economic crises, folks with a local currency often do better. Once we had “The Plenty.” Its motto: “In each other we trust!” Now that banks won’t lend and the economy is moribund, is it time to resurrect it? We’ll watch a short video on Berkshares, of Berkshire Co., MA. and discuss what makes a currency work. Lyle will recount the history of the Plenty in Carrboro and Pittsboro; and Don will introduce us to other case studies of places where folks decided to bank on each other instead of Wall Street. $5 suggested donation (no one turned away).
