Kent, Deirdre
May 2012
Future Times;2012, Vol. 2, p10
The article discusses the case for a currency issued by a local authority and proposes a contract where a land levy is paid to council to trade for local dollars to help would-be purchasers to buy land. It describes the possible effects of a marked change in the scale of complementary currencies and argues that such currency will provide several benefits, including the stabilization of the price of property.
