Richard C. Cook Interview, {Author of We Hold These Truths: The Hope of Monetary Reform} Oct, 2011 One Radio Network; Creating local currencies backed by labor, services .. and building local communities + The Gaia Plan, the Basic Income Guarantee and how we owe it to everyone on this planet the means to survive.

“A local currency provides an economic “cul-de-sac” that keeps wealth within a community. Local money tends to stay close to home. This means that profits do not get exported via chain stores and multinational corporations. Instead, people buy and sell goods and services among themselves, with the currency being an accounting tool.”
– Michael E. Merotta

“Money can be made to serve rather than to rule, to be use—rather than profit-oriented—and to create abundance, stability, and sustainability.” … it has “the potential to be the most destructive or most creative.” – Margrit Kennedy

… money should “empower people to care for each other and the earth.” – Christopher Bamford
