Hacking the Economy Series: Beyond Conventional Money

Beyond Conventional Money: Meeting our Needs without the Dollar

Money is used to facilitate economic transactions. Is there a way to meet our needs without relying on the exchange of dollars? The program will feature presentations by representatives of local initiatives aimed at creating alternative means of exchange followed by a panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities presented by complementary currencies. A new set of means of exchange is emerging that operates on trust and social relationship building social capital in the process.
