There are the Ithica hours that have been going on for 20 years. Mnt hours, Berkshires, American Open Currency Standard etc. More than 3000 currencies were circulating during the depression. We are doing it again. Screw the banksters.

Pssst. Want to buy some Stossels? They’re my own currency with my face on them.

Why should you trust them?

Because I promise to redeem them for gold. And I’m reliable. I have money in the bank and a job that brings in more than I spend.

OK, I won’t really sell Stossels. Americans get jailed for offering alternative currencies. The government insists...
