Growing Local Economies with Local Currencies

The ultrarich have been getting richer, and the richest 1% in our country own about 40% of the wealth. That's measured in national dollars. There are other types of wealth, and it's possible to set up other currencies, so the rest of us can enjoy more wealth. Gwendolyn Hallsmith is the co-author of Creating Wealth: Growing Local Economies with Local Currencies.

Editorial Notes: The book is hot off the press--the author had not even seen a published copy yet.
