Is there a Money Fix for Preppers?

We’re often pressured to buy gold and silver. But is that the best solution? We want to have real, negotiable money, don’t we?

But are we too entangled in our present money system? Are we too preoccupied with money? Do we have to be?

I came across a documentary called “The Money Fix.” It raises questions about our attitudes toward money and proposes other solutions.

It makes an excellent case for local or complementary currency systems. But it goes beyond that to explain mutual credit systems.

These mutual credit arrangements are a kind of organized barter. They’re not based on scarcity or interest payments. This can be done not only among individuals in a community, but among businesses, too.

You may not agree with all of the ideas discussed in this hour and twenty minute presentation. But watch it all the way through to see how they all fit together.

Will this film plant seeds for the development of viable prepper communities?
