Stacey Jacobsohn, primary coordinator of the Mid-Maine TimeBank, was the guest speaker on Envision This! on Wednesday August 1st. Stacey provided a very good introduction to time banking during her first visit to the radio program, and over 10,500 visitors downloaded the first archived show! WOW! She returned again on August 1st to dive deeper into the concepts of time banking; this show has also proven to be very popular.

A final thought: ENVISION THIS...a community held together by exchanging hours of service instead of $$! Timebanking provides an alternative economic system that pays people, no matter who they are or what they are doing, in accordance to the time they invest in a job. In timebanking the currency of exchange is time, accounted for by the hour, instead of money or direct barter. This is a very egalitarian system, valuing everybody’s hour the same, breaking down the class, age, and gender inequities in our current monetary system.
