The video above is from the Jai Marketplace in Thailand, where all of the goods in the market can be bought entirely in the local currency called "Jai'. Jai is convertible to Thai Baht or organic locally-made cow fertilizer and is designed to improve the local economy and the climate for micro, small and medium enterprises through the local exchange network.

What Are Complementary Currency Systems?

Complementary Currency Systems are appropriately-designed social and economic networks which encourage cooperation and reciprocation, self-reliance and mutual aid, local production, micro-small enterprise development, socio-economic solidarity and economic justice for the meeting of needs, cultural revitalization, socio-economic solidarity and rural reconstruction.

Complementary Currency Systems use a medium of exchange that circulates together with the national currency to support the local economy in a way that is socially just. Click here for a brief introduction to Community Currency Systems in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
