Douglas Rushkoff, the author of Life Inc. – How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take It Back has been bringing back the idea of alternative currencies to empower community and small business.
I don’t know if architect Andy Sheldon has read Rushkoff’s book or has strategically chosen to move in this direction but he’s currently running a special offer that epitomizes alternative currency philosophies that Andy is calling Cabin Cash.
Until April 11, 2010 you can buy $100 in Cabin Cash for $67. You can then use this credit to buy his small house plans now or at a later time. To sweeten the offer he’s also throwing in a free materials list, an extra set of plans, and a free shed plan (see his website for details).
