Comment from Prue Hyman

Deirdre Kent's book should be read by everyone concerned about social justice and the survival of the planet and humanity. It particularly indicts the orthodox and 'sick' monetary system as responsible for much of the failure of the world economy to deliver decent living standards to all and advocates 'healthy' and varied local currencies. Full of fascinating histories of earlier and current alternative money systems in New Zealand and elswhere, it is a compelling read.
