Moneyfest: alternative currencies spring up in France
Issued on: Modified:
You know the euro, the dollar and the yen, but what about the Bee or the Peach? These are just two among a number of alternative currencies springing up in France. Though they play a minor role in the bigger economic picture, these new forms of exchange are gaining in popularity. They are small projects aimed at revitalising local economies and changing the way we think about money. Moneyfest is an event in Paris dedicated to the growth of new currencies in France.
