Brixton Monay

Recommended Posts

Currency Group Pre-launch sample - One day trial run - June 2008:alt In September 2009, Transition Town Brixton’s Currency Group will launch the Brixton Pound: a local currency which can be spent only with local Brixton businesses.The Brixton Pound will make money work for Brixton by supporting smaller shops and traders who are under threat from the recession and larger chains. Money spent with independent businesses circulates within the local economy up to three times longer than when it’s spent with national chains, research by the New Economics Foundation has shown.The Brixton Pound will encourage people to think about where their money is going and commit to spending a proportion of it locally. It will help to maintain the diversity and uniqueness of Brixton's shops and market, build pride in Brixton, and establish a more resilient, connected community in troubled economic times. On the environmental front, TTB will support local businesses in sourcing more goods and services locally, reducing their carbon footprint.A Brixton Pound will be worth £1 sterling and can be exchanged for sterling at issuing points. The Brixton Pound already has support from Lambeth Savings and Credit Union, a financial cooperative owned by its Lambeth based members.Brixton will be the third Transition Town to have its own currency, following Totnes in Devon and Lewes in Sussex both of which have been very successful and received national media coverage on television and in the broadsheet press. Brixton will be the first part of London to have its own currency and the first urban area in the UK.lmao ima spend dem shits wisely

whats the exchange rate
1:1makes absolutely no sense really, maybe if they made it worth 80p, but all the shops still had the same price then yeah, but there's nothing to stop people just going and swapping it for real money
