My 9 year old told me yesterday that when he grows up he’s going to bring back the barter system so people who don’t have money can still buy stuff they need.

It’s not a complete plan by any means, but thoughts have to start somewhere. He’s such a cool kid. ☺

We had been talking about a community that had done that-created a local “barter” currency and existed independently of the larger economy because the people who lived there had basically become destitute trying to exist within it.

They were thriving now.

I think it’s definitely an idea worth exploring.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
