For more than twenty years, Bernard Lietaer, one of the pioneers of, and most emblematic leading thinkers on complementary currencies, analyzed and theorized monetary systems. Building on his historical expertise and contemporary experiences, he advocated monetary plurality and the need to establish different currencies at various scales for economic, social, and environmental purposes. In this conversation, Bernard provides his insights on changes in the management of complementary currencies that he personally witnessed and accompanied, and expertly comments the growth of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, and the challenges they pose.
