Can a paperclip get me a Volkswagen Beetle?

I just revisited the story of Kyle MacDonald, who made headlines a few years back with his website, OnePaperClip, where he started a trade cycle with a paper clip. He traded it for a fish pen, then a doorknob, and eventually ended up with a house. I read his story first on Reader’s Digest, and the idea has always intrigued me, although I doubt its efficacy in the Philippines.

Would’ve been really cool, though, if I could start with a paper clip and end up with a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle, wouldn’t it? MacDonald got a cube van somewhere along the trade. LOL I wonder how I can get my dream car without spending for it. Hm…
