A friend wanted to do a barter something with us as they are having hard times. I can’t remember the last time that I heard that word…then me being me started emailing my friends.
In the 90’s there was an elaborate network setup for bartering. In some ways, I can see how this works to trade for goods and services with out using money. Hell, in this area of Florida a lot of people have no money.
I’m not sure if other parts of the country are as strange as where we live. The extremes from foreclosures to people building their fourth or sixth house. Then, to watch people fly in on their own private jet. Crazy place, this city that I live in.
Back to the subject, Bartering seems like a good thing. To trade for goods and services and not having to worry about cash…also, a big bonus is if one plays the gray area to avoid sales and income tax witch can add up to a lot of money.
Interesting, maybe some good fiction…lots of drama…pulling at the heart with this topic …..
