KILKENOMICS FESTIVAL CURRENCY: THE MARBLE

Dick Hanscom forwarded this link to an economic festival in Kilkenny, Ireland. The festival features its own currency. -Editor

Kilkenny Marble Local Currency Kilkenomics is an Economics festival which will run in Kilkenny city from November 11th - 14th 2010.

Twenty-four events, five venues, views from four continents, thousands of questions, hundreds of answers, one weekend

If you’re like us you’re finding all economics complicated and frightening in equal measure right now. What if we were to put some world class economic thinkers together with some of the best comic analytical minds available and see if they can’t make all this easier to understand in a way that is entertaining, informative and funny?

With all this talk of money, we’ve decided to introduce our own currency – after all, Ireland’s had 4 currencies in the last 40 years, so why not one more? Introducing…’The Marble’. It will have this magical quality to get more value, access special offers and buy more stuff in Kilkenny throughout the festival weekend (in pubs, restaurants, gigs, bookshops etc). For one weekend only The Marble will be strongest currency in Europe.
