Barter: A Trade Exchange or  Barter is a  type of trade in which  goods or  services  are directly exchanged for other  goods  and/or  services,  without  the  use  of  money.  It  can  be  bilateral  or  multilateral,  and usually  exists  parallel  to  monetary systems  in  most  developed  countries,  though  to  a  very limited extent. Barter usually replaces money as the method of exchange in times of monetary crisis, when the currency is unstable and devalued by hyperinflation.
