The Economics of Timebanking : Presentation and Discussion

October 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Time Trade Circle

Presented by Julie Matthei, TTC Member &
Wellesley College Professor of Economics

How is a time trade circle part of the building of a new, more just and democratic economic system?

How is an economy based on hours exchanged for services the same or different as compared to a cash economy? Is the time bank economy subject to inflation, bankruptcy or any other conditions of a cash economy? Can the time bank run out of hours? What happens if a growing number of members have banked large numbers of hours?

Come listen and discuss as Julie sheds light on these and other questions.

Snacks will be served – please consider bringing a snack or beverage to share.

Open to TTC members and friends – all welcome! Free.
