We are in a worldwide economic crisis, the worst since the Great Depression. Many business owners are struggling to finance purchases. Trust in the world’s currencies is at its lowest point in recent memory. Individuals do not have the cash or creditworthiness to buy what they want or need.
Barter, or trade, is now reemerging as a possible solution to our current economic problem. Barter is an alternative currency in which you use your goods and services as a form of payment. Bartering predates any modern form of currency and is back on the rise!
Many of the world’s largest companies are already involved in bartering at some level. According to a recent study by Business Barter Unlimited (a large network with over 10,000 member businesses), more than 65 percent of the corporations listed in the New York Stock Exchange are presently using barter to reduce surplus inventory, boost sales, and ensure that production facilities run at near capacity.
Barter is not just for corporations. Individuals can also use barter to get what they want, either by trading directly or through a trade club.
No Cash? No Problem! is not a theoretical book about the promise or potential of barter. This practical, easy-to-read guide walks you step by step not only through what the barter process is and how it works, but through 18 detailed case studies of how barter expert Dave Wagenvoord orchestrated real trade deals with some of America’s leading corporations.
