How the time banking process could work- Richard Raygor

 

Richard Ray Raygor, a former systems analyst for IBM is now working to improve social a biological systems in the Southeast Kansas area. In a earlier session Richard introduced the concept of time banking.

"I believe many corporations have gotten out of touch with regular people and are in fact, causing them more damage than anything else. Why not get involved with things that improve the human condition?", he asked.

According to his train of thought this assist people in not focusing on a money driven economy but encourages people to focus on the needs of people, and in the process receive something back for their efforts.

The program is more than just a straight bartering system but allows individuals to bank the hours worked and then exchange them for services that someone else would provide.

As an example a boy could mow a lawn, give the hours earned to his mother to use at the hair salon, the salon stylist could then use the hours to have her car worked on at the garage, the mechanic could use the hours to hire the boy to mow his lawn. This shows how the system if perpetual and beneficial to all involved.

There will be additional interviews explaining the how's and why's of the potential program. Contact Richard R. Raygor at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
