    Sure mankind has, however, money is a more efficient medium of exchange, than bartering goods or trying to grow everything yourself.
    Efficiency can have people lead richer lives.

    Good lord, man. Now who's creating ridiculous strawmen? How about an honest debate, instead of constantly moving the goal posts and taking things to their more ridiculous ends?!

    Why, why, why?

    What reason should I buy locally?
    Why is the local merchant more deserving of my money, than a distant merchant?
    It's not 100% strawman, you keep stating that buying locally is better/good, why is it?

    You disappeared for a while only to eventually drop in and say this? Come on now. It was rather pertinent to where it appeared his argument was going. I'm not moving the goal post. You just aren't keeping up with what's being said and replied to.

    or..

    no job ---> scrounge for something of great value ---> find somebody with land who wants item of great value ----> trade for land ----> scrounge for other items of value ----> find somebody with seeds/farming equipment who wants items of value -----> trade for seeds/farming equipment -----> spend 6 months growing/harvesting food ----> eat food

    Gee...

    I've read the back and forth and every time you respond to him to take the point he makes and push it all the way to the most extreme ends you can come up with. You then post vague ambiguous statements posed as "facts" and act incredulous when you're called out for it.

    Don't make me break out that beloved libertarian quote of teach a man to fish thing.

    Just because you live in a monied economy doesn't mean it's the only way or the best way to live.

When I can, I buy local - pizza from my local guy, bakery from my local bakery, plumbing supplies from a local plumbing supply place instead of Home Depot or Lowes. I go to privately owned (but franchised) pharmacy. Sometimes I can't and I go to the big box stores. I used to go to a small bookshop until they closed and now go to B&N... I go to a local farmers market where I get fruit & veggies fresher, local (in season) and cheaper than in the box stores / supermarkets. These people are trying to make a go of it... I'd hope they'd do the same for me and lots of times it's more convenient, I have a better experience and it's closer. So why not?
