In memoriam – Bernard Lietaer 

In memoriam
Bernard Lietaer
(Lauwe, 7 febbraio 1942 – Hoherhagen, 4 febbraio 2019)
Bernard Lietaer passed away on Feb. 4th, 2019. RAMICS expresses its condolences and sympathy to his family and friends.
Bernard Lietaer published many inspiring books and articles that helped shift the lines toward the recognition of the interest of complementary currencies for sustainability, and built a common ground for thinking and conceiving complementary currencies. He was a forerunner in money matters, advocating for the diversity of currencies, against the “monoculture of money” that, according to him, characterized our current monetary systems.
Among a great variety of conferences, Bernard logically attended the first international conferences on complementary currencies (Lyon 2011, The Hague 2013). He also published a couple of papers in the IJCCR  Some of his bibliographical data can be found on the CC Literature databank. Overall, his website, entitled Currency solutions for a wiser world, contains plenty of documents and papers of his.
Bernard Lietaer will be greatly missed.
