    Neither. What kind of reciprocity is barter? Car salesmen do not look to the future for payments, they turn to other suckers (banks, finance companies) for that, car dealers barter cars for an immediate payment. Car dealers give cars in exchange for a specific cash transaction, not far the in the future, but within usually 30 days or sooner, if it is a bank financing. And the salesman himself gets a commission on the sale, not in the far future (balance reciprocity), but like each week. And sometimes a bank even pays a commission on loans steered to them, albeit that crooked practice is slightly on the decline.

    What does land ownership mean in our society???

  • Cultural Anthropology -

    You're welcome.

    I don't think land ownership is very important -- but home ownership is -- judging from the numbers of people who've over-extended themselves and bought homes at high prices in the last few years.
