Ithaca HOURS–Community currency alternative to Bitcoin

(NOTE: Chris will be updating the Ithaca HOURS story and adding a LOT to it in his upcoming Special Report entitled "Building an Economic Lifeboat.") Years ago, Chris wrote of a wonderful new--and successful--experiment to create "an economy within an economy" in the beautiful, rolling farmland and lakes area in and around Ithaca, New York; not far from his home town of Binghamton.  This local currency known as Ithaca HOURS continues to be a great success and has spawned others.  Unlike Bitcoin and other so-called "crypto currencies," Ithaca HOURS are not in circulation for speculative purposes, but to help PEOPLE improve their lives and serve one another.
