Announcing Tampa Bay local currency initiative
To help facilitate trade among local, independent businesses, Clearwater Hours has been launched. As national currency and credit is in short supply, Tampa Bay area businesses and individuals are taking action as a community. A voluntary co-operative is being organized as a network for a local, organic barter currency. There is no cost to anyone for this system. All are invited to participate in this very unique and historic event.

"In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called." - R. Buckminster Fuller
