and a research paper:

Social Economy and Central Banks: Legal and Regulatory Issues on
Social Currencies (Social Money) as a Public Policy Instrument
Consistent with Monetary Policy by Marusa Vasconcelos Freire


In Brazil, the National Secretariat for Solidarity Economy has
encouraged the establishment of Community Development Banks that issue
"social currencies for local circulation", and has struggled to set up
a regulatory framework for the use of social currencies, by means of
public policies for solidarity finance, at the federal, state, and
municipal levels of governments. Can social currencies be regarded as
public policy instruments compatible with monetary policy under the
responsibility of central banks? With the aim of systematizing this
question and allowing the Central bank of Brazil to elaborate a
reference study on this subject, this essay defines social currencies
on the basis of constitutional precepts; identifies and examines legal
and regulatory issues and logistical and operational aspects relating
to social currency systems; and investigates why social currencies
should be regarded as public policy instruments for local development
compatible with monetary policy.


Au Brésil, le Secrétariat d'État à l'Économie Solidaire stimule la
création de Banques Communautaires de Développement, en les permettant
d'émettre des « monnaies sociales pour la ciruclation locale » et
s'efforce d'établir un cadre réglementaire pour l'usage de monnaies
sociales au moyen de politiques publiques de finances solidaires sur
les trois niveaux de gouvernement : pouvoir central, des états et des
municipalités. Or, peut-on considérer que les monnaies sociales sont
des instruments de politiques publiques compatibles avec la politique
monétaire conduite par les banques centrales ? Pour systématiser cette
question et permettre à la Banque centrale du Brésil d'élaborer une
étude de référence sur ce sujet, cet essai commence par définir ce que
sont les monnaies sociales sur la base des précepts da la
constituition. Il identifie et examine ensuite les questions légales
et réglementaires et certains aspects logistiques et opérationnels
liés aux systèmes de monnaies sociales pour finalement montrer
pourquoi les monnaies sociales peuvent être considérées comme des
instruments de politiques publiques de développement local compatibles
avec la politique monétaire.


En Brasil, la Secretaría Nacional de Economía Solidaria ha estado
incentivando la creación de Bancos Comunitarios de Desarrollo para la
emisión de "monedas sociales de circulación local" y está luchando por
el establecimiento de un hito regulatorio para el uso de monedas
sociales, mediante políticas públicas de finanzas solidarias en las
tres esferas de gobierno: federal, estatal y municipal. ¿Podrán las
monedas sociales ser consideradas como instrumentos de políticas
públicas compatibles con la política monetaria bajo la responsabilidad
de los bancos centrales? Con el objetivo de sistematizar la cuestión y
permitir al Banco Central de Brasil a elaborar una investigación de
referencia sobre este tema, este ensayo define lo que son monedas
sociales a partir de fundamentos constitucionales; identifica y
examina cuestiones legales y regulatorias y aspectos logísticos y
operacionales relacionados a los sistemas de monedas sociales; y
verifica por qué las monedas sociales pueden ser consideradas como
instrumentos de políticas públicas de desarrollo local compatibles con
la política monetaria.

Jct: Sad to think IJCCR used to be the premier discussion group on banking systems engineering until Ms. Seyfang and her crew shut it down so now no one posts there anymore except her.
