Weaving Community with TimeBanks USA: Drupal and Time-Based Alternative Currencies | Exaltation of Larks

Weaving Community with TimeBanks USA: Drupal and Time-Based Alternative Currencies | Exaltation of Larks | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Timebanking is a tax-exempt alternative currency system that works like this: if I spend one hour helping you build your website, I earn one credit, or time dollar. You can then turn around and exchange that time dollar by giving it to someone who fixes your refrigerator, coaches you on your resume, or gives you a ride to the airport.

How to Share Time Through Timebanking

How to Share Time Through Timebanking | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

During the last two great depressions in the US, hundreds of thousands (possibly millions) of people organized to meet their basic needs when the mainstream economy and centralized monetary system failed them. Unemployed poor folks got together to create time dollar stores, cooperative mills, farms, healthcare systems, foundries, repair and recycling facilities, distribution warehouses, health care systems, and a myriad of other service exchanges.

HRMG444jks's curator insight, December 8, 2014 7:17 PM

Timebanking has been around for decades, though not necessarily in this salient form. Through both depressions where the monetary system essentially failed, forms such as Timebanking and bartering rose to meet the needs of the masses. Cooperatives and increased interdependence were a secondary product of these alternative forms of exchange. These increases inevitably contribute to aiding the underprivileged, and fostering reciprocity. The process of Timebanking involves participants signing up to it, and then the system matches people whom can meet each other’s needs. The “hours” can be banked, and then redeemed at a later date.

Exploit Capitalism! To Build Gifting and Sharing Lifestyles » The Fellowship of Intentioneers
