  1. I question the idea of helping out for free. While I think there is a place in everybody's life for volunteer work, why should we not get some kind of compensation in kind for work we do. It does not have to be in Euro, it can be in trade. On a simple level it would go like this: A builder is not getting enough work to afford child care. A person who has the time to look after a child need work done on their house. These people could be brought together and negotiate some sort of exchange.

    In a more sophisticated scenario, a website is put together advertising both services provided and services needed. There would be a medium of exchange for services. Perhaps time units maintained and recorded, and usable as exchange for services and/or goods. The Swiss WIR system is perhaps the most successful example of this, but there are many.

    Our efforts and talents and intelligence are valuable. Let's not give it away for free when trading goods and exchanging services in this alternative way can bring energy and movement to a stagnant economy.
