Cash is dirty, cash is heavy, cash is quaint, cash is expensive, cash is dying,’ said the New York Times magazine . Is DIY money possible? It is an idyllic dream by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s what this book is all about.

Cash is dirty, cash is heavy, cash is quaint, cash is expensive, cash is dying,’ said the New York Times magazine recently on its front cover, hailing the advent of sophisticated computer debit cards. While some people seem to be able to surf this new world of money easily, others don’t. It is a journey to discover people who claim to have founds ways of conjuring money out of nothing, the so-called ‘new alchemists’ who can take the modern equivalent of base metal and turn it into gold – and with it turn all our ideas about money upside-down.

In "Funny Money" David Boyle introduces us to alternative cash and people who can conjure money - that is, spending power - out of nothing. Until recently, the growth of alternative cash has been the province of big business. Cyberwealth, phone cards, stamps, air miles, supermarket reward points and much more besides all have purchasing power, yet are not cash as we traditionally know it. Now, a revolution is underway - locally created money systems are being invented by communities for communities all over the world. They bypass banks and governments to develop a type of wealth previously only dreamt of - inflation-proof, non-taxable and inherently stable - which can promote social cohesion and individual empowerment. Boyle tells the story of this extraordinary movement with wit and clarity: he travels to the USA, home to the greatest number and variety of local currencies; meets the prophets, organizers and innovators behind local money and relates their vision of the future; and describes how you too can take control and set up your own currency. This book will change the way you think about money forever.
