Time Bank

This is a cool idea that is exploding during this challenging time of unemployment and underemployment. Time banks include all types of services, from pet sitting to professional services.

Quoted from the article:

"The goal is to get people to trust each other and to think differently about values. Our current money system encourages competition, hoarding and scarcity. Time banking is different. We'll never run out of time dollars, as long as there are people."

It is time for us as a society to adjust our thinking from scarcity to abundance; it would change a lot of the entitlement and help with defining "enough."
