The Invention of Money

I caught parts of This American Life on NPR the other day, asking the question: what is money?  It ranges from discussing the subprime meltdown and bailout to Brazil’s past currency woes to the pre-industrial island of Yap.  It was absolutely fascinating!  So fascinating I spent way too much time sitting in my car in various parking lots between running errands.  Be careful, once you start the program, it’s hard to tear yourself away.  Go to This American Life and search for “423: The Invention of Money.”
