Money: Understanding and Creating Alternatives to Legal Tender. NEW!
Here is Thomas Greco's latest, best,
and most comprehensive treatise on money and exchange alternatives. This
book explains, in clear and accessible prose, the mysteries and realities
of money. It also describes concrete and realistic actions that
individuals, businesses, social service agencies, and governments can take
to enhance productivity and purchasing power, to protect local economies
from the ravages of globalization, and to strengthen the bonds of
community. This book is both a radical critique of our existing financial
system and a practical, inspirational how-to manual for creating vibrant
and effective community currency systems. ISBN 1-890132-37-3. Chelsea

Engine of Destruction: Money, Usury, and the Growth Imperative.
Most of the money in circulation today is "checkbook money," i.e., it consists of bank deposits which
are created when banks make "loans" on which they charge interest. This
has created a debt imperative, which, in turn, creates a growth
imperative. Thus, it is the usury-based monetary system which is driving
economic inequity, social decay, and environmental degradation. 21 pp.
with tables and charts. $6.00.
