If the world worked on a barter system, how would you fare? Would you have services to barter? Would you be successful, or would you struggle?
Struggle we must..it would be one additional step ..now that we got ” money” we accept it’s value without any confusion..only I got to make my services worth..then I would have to equate others’s services with mine..and that means..an almost endless list..
Let me imagine..I need shelter, food and voting right for new government promising tore-introduce money back as an accepted system .
Shelter : What can I do for paying rent ? umh..not much
get married to a guy who got a place 😉
Food : I can grow some and exchange..but for that I need to get access to land and again..what can I do for that..medieval times was tough ..
I will be miserable for sure.. I want to wake up from the Barter system 🙂 right now..
