  • Yessssss :d :d

    Because we trade food or so for other things like chocolate :P and my family trades for other goods like CHOCOLATEEEE EE E E E E E E E OK OTHER REASON. Because people do that at supermarkets for food they trade money so it techniqly is a practical system

  • Yes we do

  • Totally Is :D

    Because it's the same as trade and trade is exchanging goods and people still do it today. Duh!!! Money! Payments! They still use the barter system today and that is my wonderful opinion. I suppose that my opinion is wonderful is also an opinion. That is too. Hmmm, hmm, hmm

  • Barter can ultimately benefit society if done right

    Would it be difficult? Yes. Would it take time? Most definitely. But the greatest things in our history took time (ex. Equality for African Americans and women) and rarely are they easy. Its simple: I want something, and you want something, and maybe the overall outcome isn't necessarily "fair" to outside eyes, but to us as long as we get what we want, there won't be a problem. Money is more easily regulated, but that regulation leads to poverty because since there is a set price, there is a minimum amount of money needed to purchase anything. With barter, every person that has what you want will have a different price for your item to trade, so you're not necessarily poor if you have very little of something, because somebody will find that valuable.

  • In the end, everyone is equal...

    I think that the barter system is a practical system for today because everyone gets something out of it. I am only 11 and we still use the barter system. Sometimes the kids in my class trade lunches with each other. We use the barter system every day when you think about it ( taxes, morgages, even shopping ). So, if we use it almost every day the what's the point of arguing? PS: tink about that

  • Barter is the best solution of current recession

    100 % yes barter is the solution of current recession but on local community level...Then a warm community will develop who will understand each other's problems on social level too. There is a need of humanity grounded society rather than materialistic society.... As capitalism is the main cause of this recession because before recession there was boom every where and most of the ppl have cars , expensive now mobile phones, posh luxury house and house hld things.... Now due to recession no one can afford to luxurious life style so its failure of capitalism so there is need of socilism and barter system!!!

  • This is the 21st Century

    Now a days we don't even trade things for other things. EVERYONE USES MONEY. It's not like we are going to trade jewelry for food, I mean come on. P.S THE BARTER SYSTEM IS WHEN YOU DONT USE MONEY. SO, FOR THE PEOPLE WHO SAY THAT WE USE THE BARTER SYSTEM WHILE SHOPPING WE DONT. LEARN THAT USING THE BARTER SYSTEM IS WHEN YOU TRADE GOODS FOR GOODS NOT MONEY.

  • The barter is not practical

    It is a very confusing method of giving and it is not a fair method. Example you have a horse and you need grains. You give your horse for 5 bags of grain. Every thing is solved except 1 thing, you don't know if it is a fair barter. Therefore barter is NOT practical

  • Bartering Is not regulated

    Just think about it, when you go to the store you know how much a pair of shoes costs so when you check out, you just pa the cashier the right amount of money. How many bottles of coke equals one pair of shoes. Money is so much more regulated

  • Barter system cannot be used effectively in today's world."

    There is no need of barter exchange system, as in today's world there is no need of barter system and exchange of goods and resources as nowadays most of the people are having efficient money to buy the basic things essential for one's life. Therefore the people are possibly able to purchase goods, we could conclude that,
    BARTER SYSTEM CANNOT BE USED EFFECTIVELY IN TODAY'S WORLD....

  • Barter 'Systems' Don't Exist!

    Barter has never existed but on the margins, an insignificant rarity & has never constituted the primary mode of exchange for any society.
    Bartering is incredibly impracticable due to the 'double coincidence of wants"

    Monetary economies operate in a fundamentally different manner than that of barter & other non-monetary economies
    Modern society could not function with a non-monetary economy
