X594: Different Dollars: Cooler Ways Our Money System Could Work?! (Super Interactive) (Not Bitcoin) in Splash 2022 (Apr. 02, 2022)
Money seems like a natural idea—but have you ever wondered why we do it the way we do? Where do dollar bills come from? How could money be different? How could it be *really* different? And could changing the way we do money strengthen our communities? In this interactive class we’ll experience what it’s like to use a few radically different types of currencies (other than Bitcoin), like Community Currencies,Time Banks, and Local Exchange Trading Systems. Then we’ll talk about the simulated experiences and analyze the effects that money has on our minds and our community. If we’re successful you will leave curious about how a lot of normal things could be done differently! At least one sandwich will be involved.
