In addition to the limousine ride, Berger, 48, has bartered for wine, massages for his wife and computer services for his office. He’s given trade dollars to friends and clients. Since he began bartering last year, he has seen his own business grow and has met folks from all walks of life. And judging by the broad smile on his face, he’s having fun doing it.
