      Dear Friends,
      Hello, and hope you're home safely from Africa Source, Sam, and will tell us about it when you can! In the meantime, here's a model for a complementary currency system in S. Africa, the only one for Africa I could find at the Strohalm Foundation. There is certainly already a flourishing barter or exchange type of approach--informal at least-- in many developing countries, including Kenya and Africa, so it seems promising to consider formalizing this system.
      Thanks so much for all thoughts along these lines, and here's to continuing community exchanges on this topic of immense currency, haha! All best wishes, Janet

      Caught in the money trap? Break free by joining the Community Exchange System
      Conventional money is based on debt and so is the root cause of the economic, social and environmental problems that beset us. It comes into existence when banks grant loans.

        The amount of debt determines the quantity of money, which has nothing to do with the amount of money people need to live decent lives. CES 'money' is created by its members so it can never be in short supply. So long as you can offer something of value you can have from the community goods and services of like value.
