I am fascinated by the diversity of forms of organising local economic governance. My interests focus on patterns of collaboration and competition around the configuration of money, markets and enterprises. My research covers complementary currency systems, local markets, local production systems and social economy organisations. I approach these topics from an evolutionary and institutional perspective, because I consider institutions are the most essential brick in the structuring of socio- economic life.
