Re: Lets Make a List of Barter Items
But now you bring currency into it. Any form of currency will just lead us to the problems the worlds in now do to it. Currency needs to be left behind permnantly. Now maybe I'm misunderstanding what your trying to say tho.

Bartering I do not see as the fairest form of trade. There needs to be some form of other exchange.. for what will the elderly do? the infirmed or handicapped? those with little skills in food or machines?
Some people have skills that few others need yet the skills are still valuable to some. with currency of some form they can be rewarded, paid, and take the fruits of their labor to attain what they need for survivial from people who make what is needed.
Its rather cumbersome to have to barter for all that you need. A lot of hauling around of STUFF, a lot of need to learn how porduce many many things.
