Lokalvaluta även i Milwaukee,

Även i Wisconsin,USA tycks det finnas planer på en lokalvaluta. Enligt artikeln på "signs of the times" är det troligt att folk i Milwaukee trycker upp egna pengar - och helt lagligt. Dessutom lär det redan nu finnas runt tvåtusen lokala valutor i användning runt omi världen:
It's not a new concept - experts estimate there are at least 2,000 local currencies all over the world - but it is a practice that tends to burgeon during economic downturns. During the Great Depression, scores of communities relied on their own currencies.

And it's completely legal.

As long as communities don't create coins, or print bills that resemble federal dollars, organizations are free to produce their own greenbacks - and they'd don't even have to be green.
