Additional Information

The Cape Town Talent Exchange was the first exchange in the Community Exchange System (CES) network. It is now the biggest CES exchange and has served as an example for subsequent CES exchanges. It continues to attract a consistent flow or new members and is currently growing in inverse proportion to the collapse of the usury-based global monetary system.
