Throughout recorded history, mankind survived by employing a barterring system which basically traded one persons skills for another. This had
nothing to do with monetary compensation but everything to do with a "tit for tat" working relationship...a boat would be built for newly sewn
clothing, a house would be built for fresh food, a teacher would be provided with all living essentials...etc.
If we reverted to this kind of a "money-free" trading of wares, where would you stack up? Would you survive? Would you prosper?
Just curious. I figure many wouldn't have a prayer.
