Alternative economics: John Poling with Cascadia Hours Exchange

program date: 
Wed, 01/30/2008

We may use money to buy goods and services, but as John Poling, organizer with the Cascadia Hour Exchange, points out, money is not the only way, or even the best way to get what you want. He and others at the Cascadia Hour Exchange have formed a network where each person offers their skills, such as house painting, graphic design, child care, or even legal advice. Each one hour block of time given entitles members to exchange their services the skills and time of any other person in the network. Poling believes that relying on non-monetary exchange systems both strengthen local economies as well as create a deeper sense of community.
