Money Soup: A Legal Guide to Bartering, Giving, and Getting Stuff without Dollars

Janelle Orsi, 2010

Summary :

There are things we do for money and things we do for free. And then there is everything in between. In that between space, there is a growing and exciting world of barter, work exchange, gift circles, mutual

aid societies, time banks, local currencies, and other modes of transacting that don’t use regular money.

These transactions form a huge component of the “sharing economy,” the “third economy,” the “sustainable economy,” or whatever you may call this “new economy.”

I thought it would be a fun and important project to sort out the tax, business, and labor law implications of these “in between” transactions.
