What to do when times are tough? Print your own money, of course. That’s what some cities and towns are doing. http://tinyurl.com/qkb4wr Apparently it’s legal, and local currency helps encourage residents to spend locally. With stores and restaurants closing with a scary frequency lately, many people have devised ways to help their city economy. Here in New York, some consumers have opted to pick a few shops they love and patronize them regularly. With community money (sounds like Monopoly), consumers support local business with every dollar spent. Does your city have a similar approach? Does it seem to work?
