Barter is a method of exchanging goods and services without using cash that has existed since ancient times. Today, the public is likely to perceive barter as illegal, antiquated, or irrelevant. However, barter is not only legal and recognized by the IRS coding system: it is the basis for an entire industrial matrix that is available to anyone that is interested in participating.
Barter is a dynamic financial system of trade for those who are willing to do business outside the box of the current financial paradigm. Join us as Ron Whitney, the executive director of the International Reciprocal Trade Association (IRTA), and American Commerce Exchange (ACX) president Mark Tracy share fascinating insights into the world of barter.
IRTA is a non-profit organization committed to promoting just and equitable standards of practice and operation within the modern trade and barter and other Alternative Capital Systems Industry, by raising the awareness and value of these processes to the entire global community.
ACX offers an innovative way for businesses to market their excess products and services. Rather than one-on-one barter, members become part of an organization system, whereby they have access to a wide range of talents and products in exchange for their own services and inventory.
