In kind

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As natural products in particular are agricultural natural products ( crops , livestock , etc.), respectively. In earlier cultures , but in some cases still today, natural products served in natural economy as an alternative means of payment and exchange instead of money . They are used for example

  • in bartering goods and services
  • as wages in kind , for example, the pastors and teachers were paid at least partially in kind until the 19th century
  • to compensate for due taxes as with the " tithes " of earlier centuries (contribution in kind)
  • between business partners within some companies as a contribution in kind
  • as part of the own work of a client (" muscle mortgage ")

Anything natural ( animals , plants , minerals, etc.) that has not undergone any purposeful or accidental change by humans, unless for educational and teaching purposes, is also considered to be natural . The opposite of this are artifacts .
