The Economic dimension

As local groups and communities create their own local scrip currencies and exchange systems, they learn about economist’s deepest secret: money and information are equivalent --- and neither is scarce!

The Ecovillage economy is quite robust and full of vitality compared to other local economies.

Economic Vitality means:

  • Keeping the money in the community,
  • Circulating it through as many hands as possible,
  • Earning it, spending it, and investing it in member-owned retail and service businesses,
  • Saving it in home-grown financial institutions.
