Money: Hero or Villian?

What is money?

What are all these bits of paper we carry in our pockets, or (if we’re lucky) we find digitally in our bank accounts? Why is the pursuit of money so universal, and when did it start?

Is the pursuit of money the root of all evil? Or of good?

To answer these questions, and many more like them, we need to examine how money developed historically, and how it has evolved since.

Understanding the nature of money is crucial for every serious student of economics, especially since money forms one half of every transaction, because money is so widely misunderstood, and because when the quality of money is undermined then so too is the economy.

This week we discuss money, sound and unsound—and ask: money, hero or villain?
