LOCAL MONEY Peter North
In Local Money, Peter North helps you to realise that, rather than being a ªthing' that we need to get hold of, money can be seen as a system of belief. He shows how you can create money that stays in the community - building loyalty between consumers and local traders rather than losing wealth to the corporate chain stores. He explains how alternative currencies can become part of our transition process, working with local banks and credit unions to strengthen the local economy, supporting the local production of necessities such as food and energy while helping to reduce the community's carbon emissions. Local currencies are, in effect, ªmindful money', and can become a very powerful and far-reaching part of everyday life, a symbol of love.
