In this city, they've already started using a type of labor voucher, rather than banknotes, to buy certain essentials. The vouchers are run from a city-wide basis, rather than Nation-wide. Perhaps this is the answer to the currency question?

So they just have new "name" for money?

I suppose you could say that exploitation still persists, but it is a far cry from other versions of capital.

Our technology is crude but we will try to do something. We recorded the last one but failed to do the editing work needed. In the end we wrote summaries of two of the discussions.
We haven't resolved the security aspect of the 'video question' either. Some comrades have strong reservations about being put on film. Something to discuss more widely.

Right, yeah, light at the end of the tunnel, for sure-- living standards down an estimated 33%, unemployment at 26%, GDP down 25% since 2008, but the exploitation in the Volos iteration is "far different" from that in the rest of Greece because they us "labor vouchers." Sure thing.

Perfect; fits right in with the pictures of Stalin and Hoxha.

I get the feeling that these labour vouchers still exist as a commodity.

It is. I watched the video and it is clear that they're just cutting out the financial side and gave the finger to Germany and France. If it gains much traction it will be shut down anyway. I think that it also bares remembering that ancaps would probably call this a victory for their ideology.
