Are the days of the traditional cash economy numbered? This program examines ground-breaking monetary systems designed to benefit disadvantaged segments of the population and build strength in the small business sector-not only in the United States, but also in Mexico, India, Poland, and Britain. Traveling to each country, the program showcases remarkable financial innovations-including the "Ithaca hour," a currency rapidly becoming standard in the upstate New York town; a Greenwich "time bank" that encourages community involvement; and Warsaw's Fundusz Micro credit organization, which helps entrepreneurs build businesses without capital.
