tsuomela : alternative-currency   18

Professor Ed Collom
The broad areas of specialization that I work in are social movements, the sociology of work, political sociology, and social inequality. I am primarily a quantitative survey researcher, but also employ social network analysis regularly. My research tends to surround the study of alternative social forms. I've been focusing on three areas in particular: community currency (an alternative to the mainstream economy), home schooling (an alternative to the public education system), and workplace democracy (an alternative to bureaucratic control structures).

To avoid a domino effect of massive layoffs and bankruptcies, the most urgent action for businesses to take is the initiative of creating a Business-to-Business (B2B) mutual credit system at whatever scale makes sense to them. The WIR system (see six page synthesis paper for details) is a successful precedent of this strategy implemented in Switzerland since 1934.
