Disadvantages of Barter
• It is difficult to find people who will demand the things you have and also offer the things which you want.
• A conflict arises when people have to put a value to a product. For example, if you have 2 cars you will want to exchange 2 cars for a truck, but the other person may ask you to give 3 cars for the exchange of the truck
• It is impossible to divide or cut the product into smaller quantities. For instance you may pay someone 5000 dollars, but you cannot give someone a half car.
