Time banking, a way of exchanging services, not just between two people, but between people in a whole community.
The idea is that the time you spend doing something for someone is 'earned' time that you can spend to receive services from someone else.
It's a tool to form stronger bonds and a sense of belonging within a community, but can obviously become much more than that!
I read on wikipedia that because of the Swedish tax law service exchanges aren't allowed ... (or maybe it just becomes too much of a hassle if one has to pay taxes on the value of the service?)
But there should be a way around that, no?
Who's up for a new project? :D
