The system of barter and trade drummed up trust amongst neighbors. I own a plow, my neighbor a lawnmower. We make an agreement, I take care of the snow in late Fall and Winters. My neighbor will take care of my grass in Springs and Summers. This requires follow through on both ends. And when followed through, we now can trust each other to take care of these tasks.

Barter and trade between community folk will stimulate the opportunity to develop trust amongst neighbors. Bonds to be built. Connect with what we are made of as evidenced through ancestry, geography, genealogy, history, archeology, agriculture, methods of communication – our barter and trade system has the potential to greatly limit the need for fiat-instruments within the community.

Trust earned through trade.
