This differs from (for example) the [Good Relations Conceptual Model](http://wiki.goodrelations-vocabulary.org/Documentation/Conceptual_model), which we like and want to intertrade with. But Good Relations assumes Compensation in the form of money; the compensation itself is not a separate promise; and the actual flow events are not part of the model. (That's not a criticism. Good Relations has different goals, and a more minimal model makes sense for them.)
In ValueFlows, we want to track not only the offers and promises, but also the actual flows of resources in networks, in all directions. And we want to support exchanges that don't involve money as well as those that do.
