La communauté comme construction monétaire

Abstract : "This text studies the relation between money and community and, in particular, how the construction of the community is nourished by money. In order to build the concept of monetary community, it is necessary to go beyond the notion of a pay‐community, as developed by Knapp and adapted by French institutionalists. This text proposes to ground monetary community on purposes. Money thus becomes a teleological project or construction. This reasoning is illustrated by so‐called complementary and community currencies, which pursue three purposes: beyond territorial socio‐economic purposes and monetary purposes, we emphasize the community purpose, through which the building of the monetary project gives momentum to community building. In the case of local currencies, such a community building is based on various forms of proximity that generate the necessary community cohesion. It also requires the definition of the rules for the selection of business candidates for membership, thus establishing the boundaries between the community and the outside."
