Dr Peter North teaches Geography at Liverpool University. He first heard about alternative currencies while doing a Masters in Peace Studies in 1992, and has been exploring local money worldwide since then. He is one of the founder members of Transition South Liverpool.
An inspiring yet practical new book, Local Money helps you understand what money is and what makes good and bad money. It draws on the considerable track record of experimentation with local money around the world and gives ideas to those in the Transition movement and beyond about what has been tried, what works, and what to avoid.
