"Trading Floor" local currency game

This game, by Matthew Slater & Sybille Saint Girons, seems like an interesting way to explore the functions of money. It would be interesting to tie this to discussion of local currency or projects like FairCoin.

It would also be interesting to see if this could be merged with the activity "Las Islas" from Técnicas Participativas para la Educación Popular Tomo 2, in which players on different "islands" trade for boats, corn, and tools. You would want to have played each game separately before combining them.
