    Good on them  - keeps their local economy going and gets people the things they need. Where there is a will there is a way!

    Seems really rather logical to me, especially if youhave no faith in the currency. I would rather hold an IOU to have my hair done than 30 euros!

    They will also receive compensation with actual value.

    I agree:  good for them for finding a creative way to exchange goods and services in the midst of bleak times! 

    I hope they don't face the same problem they would have in the USA with that system.  Here, any form of benefit from goods or services would be taxed, even if it is not monetary income.  And the IRS would not accept any sort of payment other than actual, real money.

      Over here in the UK they would probably send in the 'Elf and Safety, and you would probably have to have a 400 page risk assessment produced before you bartered a batch of muffins for a yoga session!
