Barter

Everywhere I look, I find people arguing that folks should buy gold and silver, because in hard times, you'll need a medium of exchange.

A few weeks ago, I went to the feed store and traded 3 roosters for a 50lb bag of feed.

Last Saturday, I went back, and the gal working there hurried out to see what I brought. This time she traded me two 50 lb bags of feed for three roosters.

Now I have surplus feed, and fewer mouths eating it all.

I find that I get more value from the barter system. Labor is also a very valuable commodity. I once got a very nice 27 inch TV for a one hour brake job. We were both very happy.
