If the world worked on a barter system, how would you fare? Would you have services to barter? Would you be successful, or would you struggle?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us SKILL.
If the world worked on a barter system, I’d be a trouble. I don’t really have much in the way of skills that I could trade or barter.
The only service that I could barter would be my tutoring services that I do with elementary school students. I help them learn to read better by reading to them and playing word games and writing sentences about the books we read. I guess I could trade this service with more than one student and help many students who need help with their reading.
I also can edit educational test items. I could barter with teachers to make their classroom tests better by editing their tests. I did this work for 40 years in both the private and public sector.
I really don’t have many other skills. I can babysit children and I can drive people to appointments or to the grocery store. I could barter using those skills.
The barter system would present a struggle for me, I think. I would really have to hustle to get want I need to survive.
