Time Banking

We watch pbs newshour every morning as we get ready for work.  It is a way of us to feel connected to the world. Last week they this video came on and really struck me. I couldn't stop thinking about it. I haven't been alive a long time in comparison to others so I don't have a lot to compare to, but I feel as if we have lost a sense of community , and this seems a brilliant way to bring it back.  Click here to watch the video at PBS.  It such a simple idea.  I remember suggesting this as a child to my father when I didn't understand why we had money.  What do you think?

Watch the full episode. See more NOW on PBS.
