New Currency Models
Business to business barter systems are the most well known alternative currencies
available, and have a proven track record of improving the businesses that participate
in them. Barter systems, which are robust accounting systems, managed as a business,
are providing an alternative means of payment, while using the dollar as the unit of value. 
This demonstrates that alternative payment systems are a viable way to go. Making them
consumer-friendly is the challenge.  

To this end, Common Good Finance has created rCredits as an alternative payment system based on Community-created credit, the idea being that as a community, we can honor each other's credit and use it as an alternative means of payment.
