Complementary Economics Foundation Formed


Complementary Economics Foundation Formed To Provide Education, Training and Support Services for Innovation in the Modern Trade and Alternative Capital Systems Sectors

IRTA is pleased to announce that it played a facilitating role in the creation of the Complementary Economics Foundation (CEF) a U.S. based non-profit, IRS
approved tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. As a result, the CEF is able to accept tax deductible donations in both cash and trade.

The CEF will provide international education for legal and sustainable commercial and non-commercial, community based mutual credit clearing systems that provides an important alternative marketplace for NGO’s, non-profits, businesses and consumers. Included under the complementary economics umbrella are barter companies that deal in larger corporate trades and countertrade organizations that utilize various forms of barter as a mechanism for transacting multi-country import and export activities.

The CEF’s mission is to provide meaningful education, public awareness and support services for all of these sectors in an effort to improve their effectiveness in benefiting and strengthening economies and encouraging next generation participation to innovate in these fields.
