Time banking, created by Professor Edgar Cahn, is featured in a new Opinionator column in The New York Times. The article profiles several people in New York City who use time dollars to learn English and drive the elderly to their activities. In his book No More Useless People, Cahn writes that time banks were a response to cuts in social programs during the Reagan years. Cahn wrote: "If we can’t have more of that kind of money, why can’t we create a new kind of money to put people and problems together?” Read the full article in The New York Times, "Where All Work Is Created Equal."

Professor Edgar Cahn is a Distinguished Professor of Law and founder of TimeBanks. He teaches Law and Justice, System Change and directs the Community Service Program. With his late wife, Jean Camper Cahn, he helped create the federal Legal Services Corporation and the Antioch School of Law. Click here to read his full biography.
