A friend went to study them last year and told me that Berkshares seem not to be functioning widely. Is this still the case? I am also studying local currencies as well as loyalty programs of local businesses, but from a decision-making perspective, and I'd love to talk with anyone who is involved in running either a currency or a small business/cooperative loyalty or voucher program.

many thanks,



I like to buy locally and from small businesses when possible. But I think the advantages of better service and fresher food are a better sell for most people than is this sort of county-wide patriotism, wherefore we should support local businesses just because they are local businesses, or indeed, because we might save 10% if we do so.
