Description & Coverage
Description:

Contemporary research in the field of time-based currency has generally been unstructured and takes a retrospective point of view. In practice, approaches to this field commonly taken until now have shown that there can be as many points of view as there are researchers.

Time Bank as a Complementary Economic System: Emerging Research and Opportunities provides a systemic study of a soft system called the Time Bank, a reciprocal service exchange that uses units of time as currency. This publication explores the contemporary context of Time Bank and describes the most recent research methodologies and results. Its content represents the work of business exchange, knowledge management, and soft systems, and it is designed for economists, managers, business professionals, social scientists, academicians, and researchers seeking coverage on topics centered on soft systems and their economic influence.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Business Exchange
  • Complementary Currencies
  • Knowledge Management
  • Sharing-Based Economies
  • Social Economics
  • Soft Systems
  • Systems Engineering
