I think the barter system is brilliant. You have something and want something, someone else wants what you have and has what you want. Thus you kill him and take it.

What's not to love about it? What do you think its problems are? Discuss.

I think it could work, but would be difficult to manage.

It's flaws made it so that it wasn't the system that people used before money was invented. It's good for when you're in primary school dealing sweets on the black market (they banned the swapping of foods over here) but not for much else. All food is equal to a kid (as everybody prefers something over something else) so it works there but then you start getting arguments over if a slice of pizza is worth 2 bottles of coke and it ends in a loss of friendship - meaning that bartering is never done between them again. If a kid argues then they tend to be friends the next day (unless they're female because I've heard that girls take things more to heart than boys) but arguments between adults end in blood or don't end at all.

Monetary system is just an evolved barter system. Money is the intermediate between goods so that way you don't have to go trade a necklace for a fur coat for a dining room table for a scooter since you couldn't find anyone who wanted a necklace for a scooter.
