Struggling US towns print their own currency
Quote:Communities across America are bypassing the dollar and creating their own currencies in an attempt to help both consumers and businesses struggling in the recession.

The idea, borrowed from the Depression era when the currencies were known as "scrip", is designed to boost local spending and keep money circulating within the community.

It sounds like a heck of a good idea on a local or regional economy scale.
