Bay Area Community Exchange is a start-up group that is working towards creating a more just, sustainable and democratically run means of economic exchange (local currency, barter network, etc). These types of projects are popping up all over the world in advance of and in response to the economic crisis. To get involved and learn about future meetings jump on our online discussion group at http://bayareacommunityexchange.ning.com/

Reasons for developing a local means of exchange:
-community control over and reflection of community values in economic system
-the collapsing economy and the associated rise of poverty
-development of stronger community relations
-more environmentally sound production of goods and reduced energy use for distribution
-less money going to the government's wars
-supports local workers and withdraws support for exploitation of workers abroad
-to enjoy life more, less time working at a desk job and more time gardening, taking care of family, etc.
-greater self and community sufficiency as peak oil becomes a challenge...
