David Boyle Book and Novel

David Boyle - Author


David Boyle, author of ‘Funny Money’ (Jan 1999) is a writer and journalist specializing in economics, cities, business and the environment.

He has been pioneering the idea of parallel currencies, introducing over 20 time banks to the UK (using time as a kind of money,) after the publication of his last book, ‘Funny Money’ : In Search of Alternative Cash. He has written about the future of money all over the world and is the author of the Financial Times management report Virtual Currencies (FT 1999) and the recent pamphlet Why London Needs its own Currency (New Economics Foundation, 2000).

As a Senior Associate at the New Economics Foundation, he has been at the forefront of new thinking in economics, volunteering and the environment – and has been advising the government on the future of volunteering.

He is former editor of New Economics, Town & Country Planning magazine, Liberal Democrat News and a range of other magazines, and his book on the future of cities (Building Futures) was published by WH Allen in 1989. He is also a member of the national policy committee of the Liberal Democrats, and used to write speeches for opinion formers such as Paddy Ashdown and Anita Roddick.
