Added DiffLines:

* The [[http://www.diggers.org Diggers]], a 1960s nonviolent anarchist/radical group congruent with but not identical with [[NewAgeRetroHippie Hippies]], believed that money should be dispensed with altogether and replaced with trade, barter or giveaways.[[note]]Many Hippies figured money had to be used with the dominant culture and could be applied to good purposes. Work should mean something both relevant and enjoyable.[[/note]] We're surrounded by abundant amounts of stuff, but the money requirement keeps people from having the stuff. Dispense with money and distribute stuff as needed. They had free stores -- like thrift shops but everything was given away or traded -- gave away still-good food thrown away by grocery stores, and put on plays illustrating their beliefs. Creator/PeterCoyote was a Digger.

* ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'': The workers in the Lucky Smells Lumber Mill are paid in coupons. Which is [[MadeASlave exactly the same as being paid in nothing]] because all of the coupons are of the "Buy X, Get Y Free" kind, and the lumber mill is their only form of income.

* Variations of this tend to pop up from time to time on ''BurnNotice''. Michael Weston rarely accepts payment for his services, but has, on occasion, been known to accept gifts. Examples include a car (admittedly useful) and a bag full of cell phones (also useful).
