NPR reports that Craig's list has added a new category: Permanent House Swaps: My grandmother told me of how, during the Great Depression, people resorted to bartering to survive. With no money available, people still gave value to goods and services by bartering with neighbors for what they needed.

Now we have something in place that may indeed be one incredible tool to assist in bartering from coast to coast--the internet.

Credit is non-existant, and selling a house, even at record market lows, is dam near impossible unless you have a mattress stuffed with cash. It makes sense to swap houses instead of trying to buy and sell.

Now if companies would accept barter!
