Creative Financial Literacies: Speaking a Local Dialect

with Mary-Beth Raddon

Thu, Dec 20, 2012

Impelled by consumer credit crises, many governments are introducing market-focused financial literacy programs.  But what kinds of literacies are most needed for a sustainable, convivial economy?  This talk illustrates how barter and sharing create new literacies for security and prosperity, and examines the challenge of combining different kinds of economic knowledge.

Mary-Beth Raddon is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario, where she writes and teaches about the politics of money, experiments with local currencies, and the cultural economy of gifts.
