Money – What is it and who controls it? An interesting article. 09/11/2018 | News | 2 comments Money –Some points for revolutionaries to think about Please share: 2 Comments Simon Cole on 15/11/2018 at 11:21 am The author, Ted Trainer, clearly knows a lot about money systems and local economies. After describing the current paradigm, he paints a picture of local economies with two currencies (local & national) where people live frugally (but well) and economies don’t grow. He doesn’t mention open source community exchange systems and says city/shire councils should set these up (for good reasons). Andrew on 15/11/2018 at 8:22 pm I think that he does point out some of the shortcomings of the LETS system and his point about capital raising for business is valid.
