-------------- helluva Organized United Reciprocation System --------------

Better than barter.  Time is the unit of currency.

About hOURS
      In brief
      In more detail
     hOURS is a “mutual credit” trading system.  We use credits of our own creation as a medium of exchange.  Thus it’s not really barter, because direct reciprocation between the parties need not be arranged.  We call the credits Hours, each referring to the familiar unit of time.  It’s like using time as a form of money.

hOURS has been up and running since June, 2001 in the Philadelphia area.  In August, 2004, hOURS was established in the Boston area as well.  Presently a new enclave is forming in New York.
