The news is all about the economy sliding, and money being in short supply. How can you make your cash go further - while still living 'the good life', making ends meet, getting jobs done, and having enough food, clothes, healthcare and entertainment for your family? The answer might be found in what was happening way back in the 1990s, strangely, in the North West of England. Learning a few lessons from Canada, the people of Manchester set up their own Local Exchange Trading Scheme. Known as 'LETS' to one and all, the project allowed people to manage, even though there was a recession on then too. Local people joined the scheme and used the alternative currency that LETS could supply, in this case, 'bobbins'. Jane and Mike were there, early members, and they described what happened. Also, Jane draws on experience from her own childhood, to talk about 'sharing', and how it can make your money go a longer way. There's just as much need now, so maybe this is one answer.
