Jump to Comments

Project Description:

This is a grassroots effort to establish a time bank on the Monterey coast where professionals exchange services and earn time dollars that can be used on a wide variety of services from the Time Banks membership directory. So time is used to replace money and everyones time is of equal value.

Time banking is one creative alternative developed by Dr. Richard Rockefeller in Portland Oregon in order to lessen the negative effects of the financial downturn and high unemployment that is inherent in a currency-based economy.

This organization will be a part of the hourworld network, a national network of service exchanges, which offer support, training, marketing materials and software, for free.

The organization will also, through this network enter into partnerships with other organizations that are pursuing sustainable solutions for the future; such as The New Economies Foundation, BALLE, Transitions US, PBS Fixing the Future, The Sustainable Economies Law Center and Community Ventures.
