Regional Currencies
An explanation of regional currencies and how they work ... mainly related to Germany and Europe Published on Aug 5, 2010
What are regional currencies? Regional/local currencies are a relatively new phenomenon in economy. Since in 2003 the 'Chiemgauer', a local currency at the lake Chiemsee (Germany) started off, the project has inspired many similar projects, and enriched the ideas about how money can function a lot.
Regional currencies are a medium of exchange designed for a certain region, which are used in addition to the currency of the country.

Ideas ... Doug McDavid ... Transaction Agreement Unit (TAU)
TAU_ArchitectureFramework_v14v4
Transaction Accounting Unit is the first system proposal I have seen that was clear about the idea that 'money' had a dual role as a 'unit of account' for both the transaction and the value.
This idea can be used more generally in order to have transactions that have multiple impacts and therefore changes in multiple czpitals.
