The Hummingbird Project

Complementary currencies are in the air! I got a phone call from John-Paul Flintoff and we talked about the differences between professional barter companies and ‘amateur’ LETS groups.

And now I received the link to this video about a project in Argentina. When you move your mouse over the small triangle at the bottom right corner – above the word ‘quality’ – you get subtitles.

The hummingbird is the symbol for the passion with which to oppose physical forces: astuteness and intelligence! When we can’t outpower them, we must outsmart them!!!

The producer is the remarkable professor of sociology, biology and economics in Buenos Aires Heloisa Primavera.She talks about ‘social money’ and about ‘giving back’!
