Thank you Caroline for the in depth preperation, mindful moderation. And thank you for the texutal info, that we have copied from your description here:


During this debate, we’ll take a look at the different types of currencies asking our panel what they each mean to them.

1. Time Banking
2. Cryptocurrencies
3. Barter Systems
4. Community Currencies

What are the challenges they seek to address? What are their limitations? How can the limitations be overcome?

What are their common goals and intentions? Will they continue to operate as separate entities, or will they merge into one?

Finally, what about issues that relate to security? How can we ‘bank’ them for larger investments, such as buying a home? Is there a role for locally produced alternative energy in this? If so, how far off is this and what steps are required?
