Mission Statement
The mission of this site is to demystify money by presenting the best leading-edge ideas on monetary and non-monetary exchange.  It is a resource devoted to the advancement of economic democracy, self-determination, and global harmony.

Government of the people, by the people, and for the people, cannot be realized so long as fundamental structures of economics and finance are monopolized. The focus here is not on monetary REFORM, but on monetary TRANSFORMATION and monetary TRANSCENDENCE.

The intention of this project is to provide general access to the best ideas and sources of information about transcending the limitations and dysfunctions of conventional structures of money and banking.

If you want to escape the "box" of conventional thinking and debate about how to address "the money problem", is where you'll find the materials and resources you need.

This site was conceived and established by Thomas H. Greco, Jr., long-time monetary researcher and author of Money: Understanding and Creating Alternatives to Legal Tender. In collaboration with a number of other active researchers, he has assembled here some of the most important and pertinent materials. Here you will find works by the keenest minds from both the past and the present; descriptions of actual successful exchange alternatives; and strategic studies that deal with the opportunities and problems of their implementation.

As this site develops, it will become, not just an information source, but a nexus for organizing action.

The fundamental approach of is based on private initiative, openness, and voluntary participation - the foundations for economic democracy. The material available on-site explains and supports free market, non-governmental, non-monopoly exchange options, in short, free money and free banking. It also provides numerous links to a variety of significant sources relating to the community currency and private exchange movement.

Liberating the exchange process is an urgent necessity for the survival of a free and civil society and the emergence of a peaceful, harmonious world.

We hope you enjoy your visit and that you'll return often. This is a work in progress and we are eager to have your suggestions for additional documents and links.

Thomas H. Greco, Jr. is Director of the Community Information Resource Center.
