QM017 - Lessons From Ancient Roman Money

Open in playerListen on);
An audio newsletter taking a closer look at how money works and how it affects the world around us.

Hi All,

Today’s newsletter issue is a history episode. When we think about ancient Rome, we usually talk about the advancements the Romans made in architecture, literature, and science. As always, the role of money gets forgotten.

Without a strong currency, Rome would not have been able to develop into the empire it became. Remember - money is the base layer which all civilizations are built on top of. All great societies throughout history have one thing in common - a strong currency for the time. The fall of the Roman Empire can be traced to its money as well.
