Bartering history and present day!

Bartering history and present day!
James Walton “I Am Liberty

Bartering history and present dayThe history of bartering dates all the way back to 6000 BC. Introduced by Mesopotamia tribes, bartering was adopted by Phoenicians. Phoenicians bartered goods to those located in various other cities across oceans. Babylonian’s also developed an improved bartering system. Goods were exchanged for food, tea, weapons, and spices. At times, human skulls were used as well. Salt was another popular item exchanged. Salt was so valuable that Roman soldiers’ salaries were paid with it. In the Middle Ages, Europeans traveled around the globe to barter crafts and furs in exchange for silks and perfumes. Colonial Americans exchanged musket balls, deer skins, and wheat. When money was invented, bartering did not end, it became more organized. Continue reading Bartering history and present day!

There is a repeated pattern here when it comes to immigration in Europe. We saw the same thing happen with Bosnia in the 1990s. Continue reading The sex trade, Nigeria, Ahmed Mohammed…
