Dr. Chong Kee Tan has been an activist for 20 years, working in the area of Asian democracy, press freedom, censorship, and – after coming to the United States – in the area of equal rights and sustainability.


After the 2008 financial crisis, he began studying our financial and monetary systems, and quickly came to realize that these systems are the root causes of the most pressing problems facing the world today.


He started Bay Bucks as a Transtion San Francisco project in hopes of reversing the rising trends of inequality and making the SF Bay Area more resilient.


Chong Kee received his BA (Hons) in Computer Science from Cambridge University and his PhD in Chinese Literature from Stanford University.
