Mark Lochrie, Mike Hallam, Paul Coulton, Jon Whittle, Jonny Huck, Bran Knowles

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearch


In this research we present a visualisation to represent the flow of money between traders in the local economy. The aim is to use a rhetorical approach to persuasion such that it promotes inter-community local trading in such a way that it highlights community benefit over personal gain.
