Ciaran Mundy: “economics is basically the ecology of money”

Ciaran Mundy – Bristol Pound Director – speaking at the 2nd International Conference on Complementary Currency Systems in The Hague (Netherlands) on 19th June 2013.

“I realise that economics is basically the ecology of money…how money and how banking works, and the rules around them, are very powerful in determining the way the resources are divided, or shared, within a society.”

“(The Bristol Pound) is a voluntary system that’s dependent on the commitment of the people in it, who see the value in starting to build a more localised, or more regional, sustainable economy. (They see) how that is actually good for community, as well as for business.”
