This 45 minute animated video is an allegory of the creation of money, and explains in clear detail how we went from a gold standard to our current system.


The first 21 minutes of this video also explains how our current system operates. You don't gain the context of gold banking, but it's incredibly concise.


This video moves beyond our current system and explains money from an informational and technological standpoint. This one will get you to think about the conceptual and abstract aspects of 'money'.


This movie explains the hidden allegory of the gold and silver standards within The Wizard of Oz, and also discusses a lot of historical aspects of money.

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

Announcing the LISC Rapid Relief and Resiliency Fund

LISC is taking swift action in response to the coronavirus pandemic, to mitigate economic impact on residents in the hundreds of communities where we work. We are launching the LISC Rapid Relief and Resiliency Fund to assemble and deploy resources to our local partners, small businesses and residents who are being hit hardest. The Fund will deliver operating capital, emergency subsidies and IT support, as well as technical assistance, to keep our partners and their communities strong and functioning through this unprecedented situation.

Verizon and LISC Come Together to Support Small Businesses with COVID-19 Recovery Fund

An investment of $2.5 million from Verizon is making it possible for LISC to begin offering critical relief and resiliency-building support to small businesses facing immediate financial threat because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding will go to make grants of up to $10,000, especially to entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically under-served places who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital. Verizon will highlight and bolster these efforts through their inaugural "Pay It Forward Live" online concert series.

A Message from LISC About COVID-19

Along with much of the world, we are closely monitoring the rapidly unfolding news of the COVID-19 pandemic. As ever, we are committed to meeting the needs of our partners and the communities we serve, and to supporting the wellbeing of our employees and the people and places where we live and work. Here are some of the things we are doing to respond to this unprecedented situation.
