With Laurence Anderson, founder and CEO of Tradeswap, a trade exchange in Australia.
1. I use it and encourage staff to use it. If it works for yourself, it will work for others. I’m a high user of the system.
2. Our trade has trebled since lockdown. People won’t have cash. But they’ll have time, capacity, spare produce etc. So mutual credit can help them keep trading.
3. Don’t theorise it. Do it. People don’t realise that it’s the oldest economic transaction system in the world.
