A Documentary Film about Timebanking

By Grace Maselli


Time as Money is a 70-minute documentary directed by Lenore
Eklund and released in 2015 featuring, of course, Edgar Cahn. In it, the beauty of skills swapping, “alternative” currency, creating a network of support and a “secret economy” that builds real life, real world, REAL (not virtual!) connections between humans figures largely. Ironically, it looks like a direct download will run you $2.99+. Or, for a free copy, you can always set your sights on that venerable, enduring community system: the public library. “Everyone has something of value to offer,” says Cahn in Time as Money.
