Dukes of Haggle offers an interesting look at how old barter-and-trade traditions are being revived in order to survive the cash-strapped economy. It shows how minor details of a seemingly worthless item can potentially reveal its historic (and therefore monetary) value. It also highlights some of the negotiating techniques individual barterers will use to make a trade, and the occasional mistakes they make when trying to restore items.

The barterers' colorful personalities, combined with the mild excitement generated by the Friday night bidding wars, create some entertaining moments. Some of the weird things they try to trade might also get you chuckling. But in the end, it reminds us that sometimes taking an educated risk pays off, and that doing things the old-fashioned way can lead to surprisingly positive results.
