There are several currency or exchanges at work in small portions of Cascadia.. the Humboldt Exchange (www.humboldtexchange.org/) and the Cascadia Hour Exchange in Portland (www.cascadiahourexchange.com/) and then there is Vancouver Participatory Economics Collective (vanparecon.resist.ca/) which uses the economic system of ParEcon. And ofcourse there is another system called Solari which redines how we use and relate to "money". In the early years of the Oregon Country when the US was trying to annex the country into the US empire there was an Oregon currency called "Beaver Coins" (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaver_Coins .. a picture of a beaver coin www.osl.state.or.us/home/lib/p4b.gif).
Should we not unite these systems and expand them through out Cascadia? Can we use parecon or other non capitalistic systems in a merger with bioregionalism to create a new paradigm in all aspects of our being? Why not a merger of ParEcon with bioregionalism and Green Syndicalism to create a Bioregional Cooperative Commonwealth of Cascadia.
