"Money is not the key that opens the gates of the market but the bolt that bars them"

This course was prepared for European hobbyist users. Some of the illustrations and texts are not appropriate to conditions in developing countries, where the proposed local structures are more widely based than those foreseen for European conditions. Whereas local money systems in European countries tend to be seen as suitable for hobbyist activities complementary to those carried out under the formal money system, the structures proposed in the Model for integrated development are designed to form part of fully integrated, cooperative, interest-free, inflation-free, voluntary local economy systems to be used for most commercial transactions for the transfer of locally produced and sold goods and services. The purpose of the local money systems is to create a financial instrument to enable people in a given project area without formal money means to freely transfer goods and services there.
