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.
