Austria, Community of Langenegg, 12 Langenegger Talents, valid until 12/31/2010

The talent barter circle in the Austrian Vorarlberg is an organization in which individuals, associations and companies exchange services and goods. The accounts are passed for talents that are issued in the form of vouchers. They can be bought for euros. Because the majority of the vouchers circulates for quite a while before being converted back into euros (against a deduction of ten percent), value is created, especially among regionally oriented businesses. Hence the talente barter circle fosters the regional economy as well as social contacts.
