QUOTES ABOUT ORMITA AND BARTER
“In situations where tourism businesses need to save money there is the possibility to exchange their surplus for needed goods and services - like marketing - and thereby gain leverage in purchasing power. The gross margin becomes a form of discount on purchases when bartering that make less cash needed for operating the company. To make this systemic a commercial barter exchange may be used - also on an international level - which creates the opportunity to exchange multilaterally with other members within the same network. During the Great Depression in the 30's businesses used this system in Switzerland in order to maintain trade despite the lack of legal tender on the markets.”

“Businesses often have excess capacity in their own goods, services or infrastructure, even more so when the financial cycle slows and credit tightens. Business people find that using capacity to source needed goods and services is an attractive alternative proposition to conventional sales and credit if it can increase sales, ease cash flow or reduce reliance on conventional credit.”
