Michael Linton - Inventor of LETS

What was the nature of their innovation and how did it contribute to humankind? Michael is a pioneer in alternative monetary systems. He was one of the first who made the connection between the type of money we use and howe people behave towards each-other. When invented LETS in the 80's he laid the groundwork on which an entire movement was built. I don't think we would have advanced as far as we have with alternative and complementary currencies without the work he did.


Michael is someone who is capable of comprehending complex systems and he knows how to dig for root causes. This is a man who can look way beyond the symptoms of an ailing system. I am very thankful for the work he did and the insights he gave me.
