  •  That's a pretty sweeping indictment (0+ / 0-)

    of people who prefer a widely usable medium of exchange to a series of single instances of barter.  If most people had to rely on a barter system to fill their needs they wouldn't have time to acquire skills or talents to use for barter and certainly no time to engage in other labor besides barter.

    I'm happy you and your neighbors have found barter an acceptable replacement for currency, but I hope you're not suggesting the lives of those who "have no skills or talents" can be thrown away because the opportunity for a sustainable barter system is not available to them.
