QM007 - Money Always Develops
An audio newsletter taking a closer look at how money works and how it affects the world around us.
Today’s newsletter issue is about why a form of money will always naturally develop. In pre-money societies, systems of barter never lasted long. In fact, there are no records of any societies that operated entirely on a barter economy. That doesn’t mean barter didn’t exist though - it did, barter as the dominant method of exchange just never lasted very long. But how does a new form of money start? How do you get from barter to money?
