Summary Welfare reform in the wake of austerity has fostered increased interest in self-help initiatives within the community sector. Time banking, one of a number of complementary currency systems, has received increasing attention from policy makers as a means for promoting welfare reform. This book examines time banking theory and practice by drawing on the social theory of time to examine the tension between time bank values and those of policy makers. It argues that time banking is a means of promoting social change but is hindered by its co-option into neo-liberal thinking
