Question Description

I’m working on a marketing multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Bartering is exchanging items without money. See an example in Oscar Mayer’s “The Great American Bacon Barter” CampaignHERELinks to an external site. where a fellow traded bacon for everything he needed on a trip across the entire United States.

1. Find an example in the news that is less than five years old of individuals, businesses or governments that are engaging in barter for goods/services.

2. Summarize the news story. Clearly identify the individuals, businesses, or governments involved and what was traded. (Note: The trade should not include cryptocurrencies.)

3. Include a weblink to the news story and check to see if there is any update if the story is more than two years old.
