Money governs all these days. How do you pay your rent without? Food? What about that nice new electronic device you have your eyes on? Everything has a value, but it wasn’t always that way. In Episode 55, we discuss the history of money from its origin to now.
An interesting anthropological view of the matter, Jack Weatherford’s History of Money studies not only the way currency itself has changed, but also, and maybe more importantly, how people’s perception of money and of one another through money has evolved. Good or bad, that’s in the eye of the beholder!
