"Zamanya - Interview with time"
Roberto regarded the Money Project as a failure. The main idea was to develop a system where people who spent their own time for others received a token in exchange. However, Time employees didn't like the fact that some people earned loads of money without spending any time whereas others seemed to spend a lifetime and still ended up penniless. This scheme was managed badly. “And it is getting worse. We created a monster and it's now unfortunately out of control.”
"Money is another product from the Time Company?" I thought. How mind boggling!
“That's why we give time to our employees instead of money.”

Not everything that means less money is always good in time of crisis. Everyone wants to cut theit budgets but investments that are made in a difficult time are always pay of.

Interesting stock list. The one area I would not agree with warren buffett is his investment in financial stocks. Time and time again financial stocks have reared their ugly neck.
