Canadian Kyle MacDonald has started something. On the faith of good people whom believe in bartering, he has decided to trade his way up from a single red paperclip to a house.

One Red Paperclip

His story has grown so big that he was featured on CNN:

I am very intrigued by this, and now want to try it myself. Both on my LiveJournal and on my personal website. I wonder where this could lead?

Ah yes, one of my teachers were telling us about this guy when we were doing a unit on Currency and Stocks and such. Found it really neat.

I hope he ends up suceeding.

I hope he gets it too actually, he's very ingenious to come up with this idea. Wish it would work like that for everyone.

The rhyming at the beginning was like nails on a chalkboard for me. However once they got to the point I was impressed. I'm interested to see what he trades for a house. I hope someone keeps this thread updated so I can find out....
