  2. Thanks Theo, I’ve read this a few times because it is a catalyst for ideas. The solidarity economy is interesting. It is probable that post collapse people will still use local currency to exchange goods and services just because of the sheer force of habit. A core interest for me in solidarity economy is how to learn to get on with your immediate neighbours even when you really really really dislike them or what they represent. The point is that the people that are within walking distance of us, are going to be our social life in the future and will be our friends and family. Electronic friends, pen pals, facebook whatever are an accessory of an energy intensive world. I guess I am talking about rebuilding local social resilience in a somatic energy future. Still working on ideas as yet so will probably read this and other articles again.
