Joel Hodroff is a 40+ year social activist, entrepreneur, inventor, and environmentalist. In 1983 he founded Solar Consultants, Inc., growing the company to $1 million in sales. In 1993 he founded Commonweal, Inc., (now DualCurrency Systems, DualCurrency.com) to pilot a new business--community currency. His innovative business model, termed Dual Currency Commerce, integrates insights and tools from barter, loyalty rewards, complementary currencies, and payment systems, leveraging the profit motive to drive rapid, sustainable community economic development. Joel asserts that now is the time to update the 150-year-old design of money — once backed by gold, now backed only by debt. His advice to young entrepreneurs: Have Fun! Make Money! Change the World!

In this talk, TEDxMahtomedi talk, Joel describes his DualCurrency proposal and explores how it could help communities become more sustainable, sharing, and caring.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
