Communities print their own currency to keep cash flowing - USATODAY.com
For those interested here is a link to a local currency FAQ from the UK. Seems to have application to American cities/communities.
They're paying for groceries with local currencies?
I rather doubt that.
How does the grocer pay for his shipments?
With local currency?
It's a swell idea but it won't work.
It does work--this happened in the depression of the 1930's, in fact the Mexican peso was tradeable currency along our southern borders. Not only that but a lot of bartering went on. You could take your chickens to the store, they would give you a receipt I.E. (money) to buy things you needed.
It's just kind of hard to believe that some towns are in this bad of shape right now. Hopefully things turn for the better & soon.
