  2. You might also consider “No More Throwaway People” by Dr. Edgar Cahn, founder of the American time bank movement. Dr. Cahn was a speech writer and public policy writer for Bobby Kennedy, and is a pioneer in the ideas of alternative currencies and co-production. He also wrote “Time Dollars,” and “Our Brothers Keeper.” He heads TimeBanksUSA and lives in Washington, DC. He is an indefatigible worker for peace and social justice.
