Much of Microeconomics: Provisioning & Prosperity concerns local alternative/complimentary currencies. I began looking for reports or commentary to learn about the impacts on the participating organizations and agencies. Those who used — but did not issue — the currencies.
What I’ve found offer detailed descriptions of operations, student responses, lessons learned, types of organizational participants, etc. All important to know, but, readers familiar with impact/output evaluation models may notice what’s missing. They make little or no mention of the impact of using these local currencies to employ students had on the agencies that took advantage of the programs.
Stay tuned. Meanwhile,
