Une monnaie pour Paris
Since Europe's financial crisis in 2008, more than one hundred complementary currencies have sprouted across the continent, and almost as many are planned to be launched in the future. Concretely, they are complementary to the Euro and allow many Europeans to choose their currency now when they pay their baker or plumber. This helps to promote short circuits and revitalize the real economy while increasing the resilience of a territory in the event of a financial crisis. And often, it also helps to put forward the regional identity. The "pêche" is a parisian example.
