Rethinking the economy is at the core of transformations that intersect with every social activity: livelihoods, energy production, healthy food, protection of the environment - and of course, education. All over the world new models of development are trying to cope with the challenge of confronting financial capitalism, and in this context the Solidarity Economy has developed in Latin America. This chapter discusses how different innovations are transferred to other countries and contexts, such as the case of how social currencies from civil society in Argentina that have inspired new public policy in Brazil. It shows how governments can support and/or retard good ideas developing within civil society organisations being transmitted from their origins and finding new homes, on the way being adjusted to new conditions.
