Bartering for bad times

By John Silveira

Bartering may not be a part of your life, right now, but if there’s a deepening of the recession, or it becomes a depression, or we enter a period of runaway inflation (See A quick tour of hyperinflation and the possible consequences for America, March/April 2010) you may find yourself out of a job or you may have a job but get paid near-worthless money. Bartering may be the best, perhaps the only, way to get the goods and services you need.

You’ve bartered since you were a kid, starting perhaps when you swapped a comic book for a yo-yo. Today, you can find people willing to barter online. You can go to the opening page of craigslist.org, look under “for sale,” and between “antiques” and “bikes” you’ll find “barter.” Many of the items listed there are actually for sale (are people who do that stupid or just crafty?), but you’ll still find plenty of people willing to make trades. Keep in mind that when you see something for sale, whether it’s on Craigslist or elsewhere, the seller may also be willing to barter and this is going to be more likely as the economy tumbles. It never hurts to ask — as long as you’re not rude, arrogant, or condescending.
