Terms like ‘recession’ are already doing the rounds amid the COVID-19 pandemic, though the current focus in on overcoming the situation. However, the fact that economies around the world will be affected, is not being denied by the experts.

The National Award-winning director took to Twitter to state that the barter system was ‘simple’ and the trade was ‘fair’, as the world stared at a ‘huge economic crisis.' The Madras Cafe filmmaker shared that there would be no problem of over-production or under-production and no concentration of economic power if the system was put in place again.

Sircar shared that one would only produce as per the requirement if such a system came into place, thus ‘minimalising waste in the monetary economy.' Giving an example, he wrote that people could pay him in kind with ration, vegetables or clothes in return for watching his movie.

The director also had some interesting takes on more aspects of the pandemic. He shared that face masks were going to become a fashion accessory like jewellery and handbags and that they could even have designer label masks. 

He also claimed that 25 lakh marriages are likely to be put off in the months of February, March, and April. He quipped that even the 'production' of children will thus get shelved or postponed.
