The History of the Trade and Barter System

by Square @ Business Resource Center | Town Square

Items that are used as money often have little value in and of themselves. For example, the paper used to print money is not particularly valuable. Money has value because it is an exchange medium that people understand and accept as such. When everyone accepts that a bill or a coin has value, people can use it as a form of payment to purchase goods or services. Before money existed, people used other systems to perform exchanges. Bartering involves a direct trade for goods and services. Although some aspects of this transaction are similar to the exchange of money, bartering required time as people hammered out the terms of the deal. Utilizing money as the medium for trade simplified transactions significantly. Trade and barter were precursors to the monetary system used in today's society. Although trade and barter may seem almost archaic, they were the business solutions for people who lived before the convenience of credit card processing.

 

Bartering is the process of trading services or goods between two parties without using money in the transaction. When people barter, everyone benefits because they receive items or services they need or want. Bartering also has an advantage because even people without money can get something they need. Bartering might involve trading a service for an item. For example, you could agree to perform yard work for someone in exchange for a bushel of apples from a tree in their yard. When people choose to barter to meet a need, they can save their money for other needs.

 

  • Native American Trade Routes and the Barter EconomyThis lesson plan is great for teaching kids at the middle school level about both the history of Native American tribes and the nature of the barter system, blending concepts into one plan.

  • History of FinanceIn the early days of the American colonies, foreign banks controlled the currency, and bartering was commonplace.

  • American Indians of ND: BarteringPractice a game of bartering with your students, and you'll quickly see the difficulties in negotiation that can sometimes ensue.

  • Trading PostFor much younger students (in grade 4), this lesson plan combines show-and-tell with bartering.

  • What Is Money? – Young students (grades 3-5) will delve into what money is, why currency developed, and how bartering worked.

  • Bartering LessonTeachers can use this printable packet, which is full of useful terms and phrases.

  • Barter and MoneyThis plan is for much older students (grade 10), and delves more into the nuances of bartering and trade.

  • Barter RelationshipsCan you create an equation and mathematically validate a trade? This article delves into that question.

 

Mesopotamia tribes were likely the starting point of the bartering system back in 6000 BC. Phoenicians saw the process, and they adopted it in their society. These ancient people utilized the bartering system to get the food, weapons, and spices they needed. Because of salt's great value, Roman soldiers bartered their services for the empire in exchange for salt. In Colonial America, the colonists used bartering to get the goods and services they needed. Even after the invention of money, people continued to barter.

 

  • Bartering Through the SeasonsThis lesson plan for grades K-5 discusses specifically bartering fabrics and coats during winter seasons.

  • The History of MoneyMost of early monetary exchanges were still a part of bartering systems. Some of the most early accepted currencies were simply valued items: cowrie shells, gold nuggets, and fine metal pieces.

  • The Transition of Barter to Fiat MoneyThe vast transition from bartering goods that had value to exchanging papers backed by what the state or government said had value was a long and arduous one.

  • The Benefits of BarteringBartering still exists today. In the 1990s, it was happening in Russia.

  • The History of MoneyThe development of money is discussed in this lesson plan for grade 1.

  • How Bartering WorksThis source discusses the pros and cons of bartering, and how it still remains useful today.

 

The simplicity of bartering is one of the main advantages of this system. Issues with international trade, foreign exchange, and unbalanced economic power are virtually nonexistent with a bartering system. However, some disadvantages also exist. For a bartering transaction to occur, both parties' wants or needs must coincide to lead them to make a deal. Without a standard measure of value of goods and services, parties in the bartering transaction will need to spend time agreeing on the terms of the deal. It's common for both parties to place a higher value on their own goods or services and a lower value on the other party's items. Trust is also a component of bartering, because the representation of the goods or services offered must be accurate. If something is misrepresented in a transaction, the other party will have little recourse when a problem ensues. When bartering, people may need to store their accumulated possessions to preserve their purchasing power. Depending on the types of items, this might be difficult and inconvenient.

 

 

Because bartering does not involve the exchange of money for goods and services, it might seem like an ideal way to avoid paying taxes on transactions. However, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service informs taxpayers that the fair market value of goods or services received via bartering is considered taxable income. Parties who engage in bartering transactions must report this value as income on tax returns. The IRS requires reporting of bartering for the year it occurs. Failure to report bartering activity could lead to tax penalties.

This Week’s Must-Read Small Business Articles

by Square @ Business Resource Center | Town Square

Happy Labor Day Weekend, and welcome to our weekly series of must-read small business articles. Every Friday, we’ll be doing just what it sounds like—sharing the articles we think will be the most interesting to Square sellers. (Also, just some fun stuff). Here’s what we’ve got this week:

This guy is launching 12 startups in 12 months. Gives a new meaning to the adage, if at first you don’t succeed … try 11 more times?

He could probably use some sound business advice from the entrepreneurs who shared their secrets for winning on “Shark Tank.” Pro tip: Start with having a plan before you walk in the room.

Speaking of startups, a flight was diverted this week after a fight broke out due to Knee Defender, a new product that prevents passengers from reclining their seats. Viral marketing at its best (or worst, if you were on that flight).

Lots of news this week for small businesses looking to grow online: The Small Business Sense blog has five tips for using Pinterest to market your business. If you want to compete with the Amazons and Walmarts of the world, we recommend this guide to e-commerce for brick-and-mortar retailers or these strategies to help small sellers level the playing field.

Trying to figure out what makes your customers tick? Here are three secrets for making people happy every time.

We posted about this earlier in the week, but this story about a coffee shop in North Dakota that charges based on the honor system is rad. Not only have they not gone bankrupt, they’re making about 15 percent more in profit than expected.

First it put up shutters so we couldn’t casually window shop. Now Abercrombie and Fitch is phasing out its logo to try to boost sales. Next thing you know it won’t be suffocating us with the smell of teenage angst, either.

Finally: a story on firms that are in the awkward position of having to fire a family member. Terminating an employee is never an easy situation. Just imagine having to eat Thanksgiving dinner with that very same employee.

History of Money and Payments

by Square @ Business Resource Center | Town Square

People have engaged in commerce to exchange goods and services for payment throughout the ages. These financial transactions did not always involve monetary payments. There was a time when standard money did not even exist and people utilized other forms of payment to perform transactions. With the evolution of technology, money and payments have changed drastically. Current credit card processing technology and advanced business solutions make financial transactions possible at almost any time and virtually any place.

Bartering and Livestock

Bartering was an advantageous way to exchange goods and services for people many years ago because it enabled both parties to get what they needed. For example, two parties might exchange tools for services to fulfill the needs of both people. Livestock was also considered wealth that people could amass. The more cows or sheep someone owned, the wealthier they were.

Precious Metal Coins

Ancient civilizations used to use beads and shells as coins. Eventually, they began using precious metals to make coins. People in the ancient civilization of Lydia were among the first to use coins made of gold and silver. This currency was both valuable and easily portable.

Leather Money

Leather was another material used for currency. People in ancient China utilized white deer skin for banknotes. The notes were large compared to the bills used in today's society. Leather money could have been as large as one-foot squares of deerskin.

Paper Money

Eventually, the Chinese developed paper money. Civilizations struggled with determining and maintaining the value of paper money. In addition, challenges came in the forms of both inflation and the production of the currency. Paper money went in and out of use during periods of ancient history.

Gold

England established gold as its standard of value in 1816. Following this event, Europe began backing bank notes with the gold standard. This meant the value of any currency was set by establishing its value in gold. The United States followed suit in 1900. Before this time, both gold and silver were used for dollars.

Gold-Backed U.S. Dollar

In 1913, the United States established the Federal Reserve system. This official central bank served the financial interests of the nation. Federal Reserve notes were backed by gold at this time. One of the roles of the Federal Reserve was to ensure that notes and checks would be honored and could be redeemed for gold.

Credit Cards

Consumers began enjoying credit from retailers during the 20th century. Some retailers, such as department stores and gas stations, began creating individual credit cards to issue to consumers. These cards were created to make spending money more convenient for people. Diners Club was the first actual credit card, which gave consumers the ability to purchase meals from several restaurants located in New York City.

U.S. Dollar

In 1933, the United States discontinued the gold standard to keep Americans from cashing in their currency for gold, depleting the national gold supply, amid worsening deflation. From this point forward, the federal government became the official backer of the monetary system instead of gold. However, the U.S. continued to let foreign governments trade dollars for gold until 1971. At this point, the country became concerned that foreigners would sap the national gold reserves, leading to an end to this practice.

Online Shopping

With the rise of the Internet during the 1990s, online shopping arrived on the scene. Consumers embraced the ability to peruse the Internet and make purchases. Common historical data suggests that Pizza Hut may have been one of the first retailers to execute an e-commerce transaction. The company began allowing people to order pizza on its website as early as 1994.

Mobile Payments

Coca-Cola receives credit for offering the first mobile payment transaction in 1997. The beverage retailer created special vending machines that enabled consumers to pay for their drinks by sending text messages from mobile devices. Since this time, mobile payments have skyrocketed in popularity. Now, more people than ever before are paying on the go, and more merchants can accept payments anywhere, without being tied down to a cash register.

History of Marketing

by Square @ Business Resource Center | Town Square

A business that sells products or services must have a way of attracting customers. The process of promoting a company's products or services to gain customers is known as marketing. Successful marketing also goes one step further because a business should also pursue ways to retain customers for future sales. The size of a company determines marketing strategy. Some companies may have a department dedicated to performing this work. Other companies may need to pursue these tasks while performing other work, too.

What Is Marketing?

People who buy products and services must have a way of learning about the various companies that provide them. To succeed, companies must have a plan for advertising products or services so people who want them have the opportunity to purchase them. Successful marketing involves a variety of different tactics, with everything working together to promote products or services and retain customers. In-depth research is the crux of successful marketing because a business owner must have data that indicates that a product or service will resonate with consumers.

History of Marketing and Timeline

Enterprise and economies have a long history dating back to ancient eras. People have been engaging in commerce for thousands of years. Hence, ancient people utilized some forms of marketing as they conducted business. The Industrial Revolution paved the way for more modern forms of advertising and retailing of goods and services.

Print Advertising, 1450s: Print advertising made it possible for retailers to pass out brochures and fliers to potential customers.

Magazines, 1730s:The first magazines were developed and released.

Posters, 1839: France banned posters on private property.

Billboards, 1867: People began renting billboards for advertising.

Radio Advertising, 1922: Businesses began purchasing advertising time on the radio.

Television Advertising, 1941: Records indicate that people began purchasing television advertising at this time.

Telemarketing During the 1950s: Telemarketing was born, with businesses utilizing the telephone to reach potential customers.

Mobile Advertisements Between the 1970s and 1994: Advances in technology enabled new marketing capabilities via the Internet such as e-commerce promotions, database marketing, guerrilla marketing, and computer-oriented spam.

Search Marketing, 1995: Companies began the process of working to promote a business by getting search engines to send traffic to a website. Firms also began utilizing search engine optimization, or SEO, to drive traffic to websites via the use of keywords typed by consumers in search engines.

Blogging, 1998: Businesses and individuals began creating blogs as vehicles to share professional or personal information.

PPC, 2000: Pay-per-click surfaced in this year as an Internet marketing technique in which a company pays a small fee for every click on an advertisement.

Social Media, 2003: Social media websites became popular at this time as a way for people to share information and ideas with others on the Internet, including commercial messages.

Google Analytics, 2005: Google provides website owners with information about people who visit their websites that can help them see if they're reaching their audience.

Types of Marketing

Companies can utilize different types of marketing for promotion. Internet marketing is prevalent with today's advanced technology. This type of marketing includes any promotions that occur on the Internet, such as social media marketing, email marketing, and search engine marketing. Direct marketing includes activities such as cold-calling potential customers, sending newsletters, and purchasing space on billboards. Another marketing strategy includes maintaining a connection with previous customers via thank-you notes and special promotions.

The Role of Marketing

Marketing has a direct impact on sales and a company's overall profitability. Researching sales forecasts will determine how a company plans its production. Careful planning is crucial to ensure that a company remains solvent with expenses and income. Marketing enables a business to learn about its potential customers, which helps it to fulfill the needs and desires of consumers. Marketing also enables a company to test certain products or services to see whether they are successful with consumers. With a positive consumer response, a company can proceed with a sales plan. A meager response might lead to reorganizing a campaign and trying again to test consumer response.

Beginners Guide to Coin History

by Square @ Business Resource Center | Town Square

Before paper bills, credit card processing, complex taxation, and electronic money, there was the beautiful, simple, artistically crafted coin. Its history aligns uniquely with the evolution of civilization. Today, its use is widespread in most major regions and countries of the world. While the way that they're made has evolved, the basic concept of exchanging bits of metal for goods has lasted through the ages and become an essential part of the human experience.

Early Coins

The first move away from the barter system may have been the exchange of cowrie shells, which eventually evolved into metal nuggets and pieces. Metal money exchanges started in the form of small knives and tools in China. In the 5th century BC, Chinese hollow spade money was commonly used. While not using "coins" per se, these were some of the first exchanges of valuable, standardized metal materials. This eventually evolved into the recognizable, rounded Chinese coins. In the west, the first official, minted currency was possibly the famous Lydia coin, which was created in modern Turkey and featured an image of a lion. It was made of gold. These were pounded out with a hammer and were create for King Croesus. In the greater history of money, this was a very important next step to opening up the Mediterranean to trade and an exchange of goods and ideas. In the next centuries, coins began to be exchanged and accepted on a global scale.

Types of Coins

While paper money started to become the dominant currency in China as early as the 13th century at the behest of Emperor Kublai Khan, coins were absolutely essential to several empires, which all had their own mints. In the Persian Empire, the coin of choice was the daric. In Greece, the ancient currency was the drachma, which is still used in its modern form today. In Rome, on the other hand, the currency was based around the silver denarius. During and after the fall of Rome, in the Byzantine Empire, the major coin was the golden solidus, which was also known as the nomisma. In China, the coin design stayed by and large the same, in the form of a circle with a square hole, which was called the ban liang coin. In the Renaissance, the florin was quite common, and the pound was used in England.

How Coins Are Made

Throughout history, coins have traditionally been struck using blanks and a set of dies. Many types of dies have been used throughout history. The Romans made popular a hinged set of dies that joined together like tongs. The dies were made out of a harder metal than the softer coin materials, which were often made from alloys of gold, silver, copper, or bronze. The blanks were cut to consistent, uniform thickness. Then, the material was placed inside the die and struck with a large hammer or a set of machinery that involved pulleys. Eventually, the fly press made this method much faster and easier. Modern American coin production is a little bit different. It closely resembles a manufacturing process. Large sculptures are made for the dies in clay and plaster, then created as epoxy models, which, using digital machinery, are used to create the metal dies. Rather than being formed by cutting ropes of metal, coins are punched out of long metal sheets. Production then moves at a lightning pace (with the press stamping about 1,750 coins per minute). In other countries, like the U.K., the coin-making process is treated with a high level of respect and combines hard science and art to create consistent, flawless pieces. While we may no longer feature the gods and goddesses that so often frequented ancient coins on our money, the basic methods of coin minting have mostly stayed the same.

Collecting Coins

Coin collecting has become a popular hobby in the U.S. and many other areas of the world, possibly because coins have been made for thousands of years and seem timeless. Modern coin collectors especially love lesser-known, rare coins, which are specific to a time and place in history. Collectors are often fascinated not only by the age nor necessarily how much a coin is worth but by the beauty of the dies and the uniqueness of every piece. Some collectors treasure the imperfect, ancient coins that were just barely folded out of lumps of flawed alloy, whereas others want the rare U.S. pieces that were examples of exquisite craftsmanship but just never became popular. If you're thinking about getting started collecting coins and joining numismatic groups, always keep in mind the story of each piece. Successful coin collecting should inherently be about education and understanding both how these coins were made and their place in the history of civilization.
