Swapping Ditch-digging for Legal Services

In Portland, Maine Host David Brancaccio meets Richard Rockefeller, a physician from a famous family, who has set up a time bank where community members swap services in a cashless system (lowering taxes). From ditch-digging to legal services, each member does work for others and in return. Watch as David donates an hour weatherizing a house and in return get a sailing lesson on Casco Bay.
