At first I thought about asking "Do you barter?" but then thought the "what" people barter might be really interesting.
The article that inspired this curiosity comes from our newsroom, Short on cash? Try bartering:
"Getting a handle on the growth of bartering isn't easy. Barter transactions are taxable, but the state Revenue Department doesn't keep statistics on barter deals.
Craigslist.com reportedly said that bartering ads have risen 100 percent in the last year. And there are other indicators that bartering is on the rise."
