Hidden Secrets of Money. A great series about the past and current YANG money system (says nothing about Yin currency systems) by investor and gold bug Mike Malodey. I do disagree with his use of the terms Money and Currency. But a great series nonetheless.

 The Macro Stability of Swiss WIR Bank Spending: Balance, Velocity and Leverage (April, 2012)

Abstract: Since 1934 the Swiss Wirtschaftsring (“Economic Circle”) or WIR Bank has issued its own reciprocal credits, not backed by Swiss Francs. Turnover in WIR+credits is shown to be highly counter-cyclical: firms are cash-short in a recession, and economize by greater use of WIR. A money in the production function (MIPF) model implies that this new spending arises mainly through increased credit Balances for larger firms, and increased credit Velocity for smaller ones. Panel data by industrial sector confirms this general pattern of WIR credits, a role similar to that of commercial trade credits, an important source of non+bank credit. The countercyclical multiplier on WIR expenditures will be highly leveraged.
