      Learning To Exchange Time: Benefits and Obstacles To Time Banking

      Lucie Ozanne

      Findings from a qualitative study of Time Bank members from the first
      Time Bank in New Zealand are reported. Using focus groups, this study
      identifies benefits of Time Banking in terms of physical, human,
      social, and cultural capital. Unlike previous research, this study
      explores Time Banking in a relatively affluent community thus allowing
      us to understand why those from other populations may participate in
      Time Banking. This study also identifies a range of obstacles that may
      prevent individuals from fully utilising Time Banking and may hinder
      the full development of individual Time Banks. Finally, a number of
      recommendations for practitioners are discussed.
