USA: BUILDING A BARTER SYSTEM
In "Money & Debt, A Solution To The Global Crisis," author Thomas H. Greco, Jr., stresses that the world has changed and local community interaction is the key to future prosperity in today's unraveling economy. Greco goes on to say reduction of our independence on banks and the fiat system is necessary and to do so, we must organize private exchange systems that can be networked together.

Barter systems are not anything new, but they usually appear after economic collapse occurs, when people are less able to produce a viable method of obtaining the goods and foods they require. The wiser course of action is to begin building barter networks now so as to minimize the effects of an economic/financial crisis and to maintain your independence from a system in its death spiral.
To begin: Make a list of your talents and items to be traded. If you can sew, offer to make clothing items or to hem slacks. If you can construct things, offer to trade repair work. If you have a vehicle, offer transportation for medical care, etc.
Next: Create a flyer listing your talents and possessions to be traded and circulate them in your community...in your church, at the supermarket, in your local library.
It is never too late to become proficient in a skill. Seek an elder who has the knowledge that you seek or search the internet for ideas, for how-to lessons or go to your library and search reference books or have intra-library loan order the books required.
Most of all, be at peace while the world is in transition, for the upheaval is a blessing in disguise.
