2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 32,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 12 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Announcing the 2nd International Conference on Complementary Currency Systems, June 2013

2nd International Conference on Complementary Currency Systems:

Multiple moneys and development: making payments in diverse economies

Organised by the International Institute of Social Studies in The Hague of Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands

June 19th to 22nd, 2013 (Academic strand: 19th and 20th June; Practitioners’ strand: 21st and 22nd June)

The conference seeks to discuss the social, economic and political significance of multiple currency systems for development. It calls for papers on complementary currency systems, historical experiences with multiple monies, alternative exchange networks, and other practices with diverse means of payment. The II International Conference on Complementary Currency Systems also aims at consolidating the practice of holding a meeting every two years for researchers and practitioners on the topic.

It offers space to academics and practitioners alike to organize panels, workshops, and any other session formats that participants see fit to stimulate the exchange of ideas and experiences. In principle the conference will have two strands with academic and practitioners’ activities respectively but there will be various instances for interconnection. The first two days of the conference (June 19th and June 20th) will concentrate the academic panels and the last two days (June 21st and June 22nd) will focus on the practitioners’ activities.

The conference will be bilingual (English and Spanish) with sessions organized in either language.

Conference fees’ waivers and travel subsidies are available but in great demand. Please submit your request  with your abstract, with details on what kind of waiver or subsidy you require and a budget for your travel expenses, if applicable.
