I'm sure by now many have heard of " The Sharing Economy". Exchanging Goods and Services on the Internet for money. The sharing economy gives a trust rating to individuals for a reputation. So the more one needs, be a good rabbit and so on. I believe in the reputation rating for the quality of goods and/or the services one would provide.
However what if like Craigslist, people could exchange in their own communities or from afar goods and services for goods and services. Most of us have skills or items (like new) to exchange for others skills or items. In this network imagine the possibilities.
Hey, if you and another individual agree you're exchanging of equal value based on reputation as well, then it's a Go Deal!
So, if your a music group looking for a week of food to play a party both ends make a deal.
Your an mechanic that want's an awesome piece of Art Created.
Dishwashing so you can get some magnificent Jewelry.
It's not just materialism or getting one's needs met either. I believe this would strengthen communities and connect people on another level besides money. Don't get me wrong it is still useful in some form or another. Depends what people's intention is in this world where we will end up.
I realize what I'm explaining people have always done but with the internet people could get by with a better quality of life and socialization.
Love, Abundance and Peace to All,
