for collecting pages describing debates here on this list. I added a

Stefan, better you change the page title  ;)

I was not sure on the page title, indeed. May be something like
`AlternativeMoney' would catch what I meant. Right?

alternative is misleading - one thinks of AN alternative which conjures up 
competition and singularity  (diversity is all) - complementary or community 
currencies would be more accurate - complementary in that they operate 
alongside other money systems and in some ways augment them - ie they are 

community currencies because any community (geographic, interest, association, 
network) can have its own money system but not as an alternative to existing 
and new moneys but as a complement.

OpenMoney is a LETS-like decentralized model and instead "Gesellian"
demurrage based model is (actually) a centralized model. They're NOT

So please feel free to improve on my understanding and explain the
differences. That's what a Wiki is for :-) .

your understanding would be much improved by reading the wealth of material 
(20 years worth) already written in places like these... and community

....the money problem

...current system design

...ebook by Tom Greco - New Money for Healthy Communities
