"We need to re-democratise the monetary system, to have a set of alternatives for issuing credit outside the banking oligarchy. Alternative currencies can play a vital role in that – particularly in conjunction with the exciting developments in ICT [information and communication technologies] which enable consumers and producers to exchange with each other across a larger area and based upon values other than globalisation and economies of scale."
