The advantages of LETSystems
LETSystems offer benefits to all sectors of a community without exception. Currently, our societies are characterised by increasing division. This is due, in part, to our use of a monetary system that ultimately serves those with money rather than serving people in general and in particular. LETSystems value the contribution made by individuals to a community and acknowledge that contribution.
Initially, people usually have some difficulty on seeing how the use of a LETSystem may benefit them personally, but once the imagination is fired up, and one starts thinking through how LETSystems and the use of local money within one's own personal and community circumstances, then the real possibilities become visible.
We can only scratch the surface here of how the use of LETSystems can offer substantial advantages to each sector of communities. Those advantages are not a 'competitive edge' gained at someone else's disadvantage. They are brought about by intelligent co-operation and collaboration, creating mutual benefits.
To paraphrase Rousseau:
"No problem can withstand the onslaught of sustained thinking."
