WIR Book Now Available in English


Thomas H. Greco with Prof. Tobias Studer in Basel, Switzerland in May 2005.

The Swiss WIR Bank is the best example we have of a successful large-scale mutual credit clearing system that has stood the test of time and continues to thrive. Up until now, very little information about its history and operations was available in English. That situation has now taken a significant turn.

Prof. Studer’s book about the Swiss WIR Bank is now available in English. This excellent translation by Prof. Philip Beard of Sonoma State University, is a “must read” for any student of money, banking, complementary currency, or exchange alternatives. – T. H. Greco
