On Social Commons: Timebanking in Barcelona

How best to restore the social commons in a way which creates a deeper interaction between altruism and economics? Build a complementary community currency which straddles the nexus between assisting a neighbor and incentivizing participation in broader community. This is timebanking where we restore connections to community and expand our capacity for empathy. We need a common infrastructure where we can map out the existing needs of our communities and then perform matchmaking to the body of assets within the community that can meet those needs.
