Money holds many mysteries. Where does it come from? How did it evolve? Who creates it and controls it? Why do we never seem to have enough?
People Powered Money helps to unravel the mysteries behind our every-day understanding of money to provide practitioners and policy-makers alike with the currency innovation advice and tools needed to successfully re-engineer money.
Drawing on a wealth of historical experience and breadth of present day practice from six pilot currencies across North West Europe, People Powered Money reveals how currency innovation has the potential to make the world a better place — and explains how communities can create their own.
