LOCAL ECONOMY ARCHIVE


As the global economic system remains both fragile and fractured, we look at the potential benefits of 'local complimentary currencies' as their growth spans the globe in a number of different models and guises.


Our objective is to stimulate local economies and help create a sustainable future through preparedness, leading to greater resilience. The ISSS can provide all information, support and tools to enable local communities to impliment Local Complimentary and ITK currencies. Use the links on the page and downloads. Contact us for any further information you may require.


In the spring 2013, the ISSS commenced two alternative / complimentary currency projects:


Feasibility Study for a Local Complimentary Currency in Upplandsbygd


 Study of existing currency models, local communities and local authority perspectives and asked the question "How to build and implement a successful local complimentary currency in rural Sweden and could it provide resilience in a rapidly changing world"?



ITK Minutos


The launch of a pilot case in Sigtuna kommun for a new model which originated from Germany  not requiring any administrative effort:  The term "Minuto Cash" is based on the possibility that anyone can publish their own paper money. Minutos, used in the same way as cash, is a truly decentralized payment solution.
