Your Skills... Your Financial Future

You've reached the LETS page! Caveat surfer: These pages and links are experimental and in progress...

LETS stands for Local Economic Trading System. Instead of cash, traders use an elctronic currency to trade for goods and services. Some LETS systems use an alternative paper currency. It doesn't matter if you're cash-poor; with LETS you can turn your skills into buying power. LETS is non-profit. Think of it as your community currency. LETS lets people put their skills to work in their community for real bargaining power and a financial future. Some day there will be a LETS in every community.
