Lars Schall meets Bernard Lietaer: In this exclusive video interview, the internationally renowned currency expert Lietaer, who has worked in many different functions in the world of money, advocates an upgrade of our monetary paradigm as a systemic solution to our global financial crisis. The monopoly of a single currency in favor of the banking system must be eradicated. Diversity must substitute monoculture.
Do take the time to view this. Bernard shares 14 years of fighting against orthodoxy. Solutions for the intractable problems of our era are available. Up for us to seize. By " We" yiou should read "we the people", the 99%. Thousands of systems exist. Do join the movement, be creative, I cannot understand this has not taken a faster track. It is still time. Let's act fast, bridging the knowing-doing gap. Masterfull.

The reintroduction of local currencies based on a diversified set of values might just be a way out of the mess we are in. Things are happening based on new ways of collaborating and alternative creditsystems help deliver the promise of the network society.
