Save UK£ money by making the Lewes£ scheme work
Local currencies are great but to really work the money must be created locally not just exchanged for UK£. The best way to do this is for future Lewes£ to be spent into circulation on activities agreed by the Lewes District community and administration. This new system would be accepted by UK government for 3 reasons: 1. The Lewes£ professional/goods spending would add to GDP and taxable income. 2. The scheme could be replicated elsewhere and end austerity/hardship without adding to UK debt or taxes. 3. It will enliven community cohesiveness, in particular by valuing skills of those feeling marginalised by the convenional economy.
