The illusion of localism is the triumph of globalisation.

The idea is to help local traders by issuing money which customers can only use in their shops. In turn, customers know that the shop must then buy its stock from a local supplier, or pay a 3% fee to convert the Bristol Pound back into sterling.

How does that benefit a business?

So in order to boost free market ideology, we make a currency which is limited in scope and acceptance.

Mental.

If people want to shop locally, they will do so. This is PRSC mentalism taken to the Nth degree.

There are no signs saying the Bristol pound is accepted outside the various massage parlours in the area.
