Alternative Currencies – A Primer

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).

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
