Hey Lads,
i need 50 more respondents for this poll as part of my dissertation on Bartering. If you could answer I would be most grateful.
Bartering is defined as the exchange of goods and services for other goods and services without the use of a medium of exchange ie; money. If you have offered some advice in an area you are qualified in such as accounting for some other advice ie;construction of new house, then that is an example of bartering.

If you answer yes, could you please choose either option c or d to indicate if you have bartered more, or less, since the recession commenced (since 2007)
if you feel it has been unaffected, then simply an A will suffice.

Many thank you's!

I barter services and always have.
A little bit of work/advice on IT for some assistance from the other person in their professional field when needed.

Bartering, is more common that most thing, and it mightn't be obvious that bartering is going on.
