LOCAL CURRENCY (Microcurrency)
There are several communities in Oregon that have adopted local currency to keep hard earned "dollars" in local economies. One example is in the Columbia River Gorge. (http://www.riverhours.org/) There, local business and community minded residences have developed a currency called RiverHours. Its such a great idea! Read more at their website. There was also a story on NPR's website today that mentioned another local currency that has an even wider acceptance in Germany (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128462416&ft=1&f=1001)
