Get all sorts of interesting ideas from the Capitol Hill Community Council. Vice prez Charlette Lefevre of Broadway’s Museum of Mysteries adds another peculiar one to the pile — Capitol Hill currency:
|A possible solution to the Economic Crisis by keeping the green on the hill. Here is how it works:
Many communities have printed their own currency in an effort to encourage consumers to spend in their neighborhood. A dollar note that acts as a 10%discount (excluding alcohol) at participating businesses will encourage business and visitors to the area. For a business to participate, all they have to do is post a bill in their doorway to let consumers they honor the discount. The discount bill can be copied by anyone and may become self perpetuating by businesses that want to put out an attractive novel discount coupon.
We like it. Especially if it means we get to make a fun poll to choose the new bills.
