I think this is the best idea I ever heard, The Time Banking focus in the important of people and what they can offer to the community.
This is a little introduction to the subject:
A time-based currency is an alternative currency where the unit of
exchange is the man-hour.
Some time-based currencies value everyone’s contributions equally.
One hour equals one service credit. In these systems, one person
volunteers to work for an hour for another person; thus, they are
credited with one hour, which they can redeem for an hour of service
from another volunteer.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time-based_currency http://bancodeltiempo.sanjavier.es/intercambios.php
I have to do a time bank in my community, I really do. The San Javier link was so inspired!!! http://monedascomplementarias.pbworks.com/Art3
