Er than a commodity medium of exchange as the academic economists insisted then fundamentally different factors explain the economy s demand for it Meeting demand for commodities is a simple matter of ensuring a sufficient supply on the market When it comes to transferable credit however volume alone is not enough the creditworthiness of the issuer and the liuidity of the liability come into The Iron Palace (Shadowed Path, play And both these factors are determined not technologically orhysically but by the general levels of trust and confidence 198 These different ways of understanding money have Bad, Bad Bluebloods (Rich Boys of Burberry Prep profound conseuences for governments andolicymakers As long as money has inherent value then the job of In the Cavern of the Night policymakers is to simply create the conditions in which the actual value of money can be expressed But if money isrimarily an extension of ersonal obligations that we have to each other backed by the confidence that these obligations can be exchanged and honored then the can be exchanged and honored then the of economic olicy is to create trust and confidence These are fundamentally different ways of understanding not just money but the role of governmentWhat ultimately emerges from Martin s analysis is a sort of historical competition between these two very different ways to view money money as a thing that represents value and money as a technology that organizes social interactions The differences are Romancing the Customer profound Under the former view for example the cause ofoverty is that The Articles of Release (The Release people do notroduce anything of value Under the latter view the main cause of The Sleepwalkers poverty is thateople don t have money In Martin s narrative the two views dueled for about 300 years with the second view always being articulated by somebody but the first view winning out because it was Idle Ideas in 1905 philosophically compatible with the values of the Enlightenment Over time though the tendency of money economies to accumulate debt lead to the growth of a largely unregulated debt management industry that collapsed in 2008 and vaporized trillions of dollars forcing governments to bail out financial industries that had emerged in the shadows of their monetaryolicy and thereby combining the worst aspects of both command and laissez faire economies by socializing risk while Haunted Marion, Ohio privatizingrofits In effect what happened in the events leading up to the crash of 08 was that the banking industry was treating money as negotiable obligation while governments and regulators were treating it as something with inherent value To Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, put this another way money was acting like the thing that it is and governments were treating it like the thing it was supposed to be The only way out of the trap he suggests is to flip the lens and acknowledge that money is a social andolitical construction that organizes social relationships and not a abstract reflection of something called real valueI found Martin s arguments very compelling and I was impressed by his handling of the sorts of texts not normally associated with economics Homer and Aristophanes Dickens and Shakespeare Cicero and Caesar they all give

Us Hints About How Money 
hints about how money at certain times in history and he is as comfortable with them as he is with Adam Smith and Karl Marx But where I found Money The Unauthorized Biography the most compelling was in its author s ability to balance a sterile if essential discussion of monetary olicy with a deep understanding of the social relationships that make money well money He helped me grasp in a way that I never had the fact that money is essentially a mechanism for social interaction between actual human beings and that many of the roblems that we associate with it are actually Protectors of the Stars (Theias Moons, problems with the way we interact with each other This is the best most clear andersuasive history of money and economics I have ever read And I read a lot about money and economics There isn t a single sector or era or The Total Fishing Manual (Field Stream) philosophy that he doesn t touch My only complaint is that I didn t find this book sooner. Drawing on stories from throughout human history and around the globe Money will radically rearrange your understanding of the world and shows how money can once again become the mostowerful force for freedom we have ever know.

CHARACTERS Money By Felix Martin

Is for that of course but we have no evidence that such exchanges were ever the basis of an economic or social system This is just the economist s version of the mythical state of nature where everybody interacted without any kind of social organization But there has never been an original state of nature either We can go all the way back to chimps and bonobos and there is always a social organization And the social organization is always based on Informing the Future promises obligations and reciprocal duties And it is these that are in Martin s revisionist narrative the real origin of money Inre monetary societies which was Dragons Do Eat Homework (The Bailey School Kids Jr. Chapter Book, pretty much every society before the Greek and Ionian city states starting around the 6th century BCE obligations andromises were structured differently but they still existed and The Last Ride of German Freddie people kept track of them indeed some anthropologists believe that keeping track of such things drove much of our cognitive evolution see Robin Dunbar s Grooming Gossip and the Evolution of Language These obligations and responsibilities often took the form of religious sacrifices which had the effect of redistributing foodstuffs through the cultic center marital settlements and reciprocal duties in hierarchical relationships When obligations and reciprocal responsibilities become debts and are accounted for in a systematic way they can be monetized and exchanged Money is a way to organize social responsibilities in a large society by converting those responsibilities into units that can be tracked and exchanged For money to exist then there must be three thingsresent in a society 1 The idea of a universally accepted unit of value which means that anything that someone 16 v ja haku päällä promises to do for or give to someone else can be assigned a value of X number of units 2 The ability to keep track of who owes what to who and 3 The ability to transfer obligations with the confidence that theromises embedded in them will be always be honored Martin s history of money begins in about 600 BCE when the highly developed accounting systems of the Fertile Crescent Babylon and Persia came into contact with the nascent Greek concept of universal value This is why the first coins that we know about trace back to the Ionian kingdom of Lydia in about 590 BCE Lydia in Modern Turkey was situated in between the Greek and Persian worlds and the two most famous Lydians in history Croesus and Midas are The Malbim Esther probably also the two most famous cautionary tales in history about the dangers of a money economyWhat this means inractice is that the things we consider the most abstract about money are the things that have always been there Money has always been a Moonchild promise toay something that could be recorded and transferred This aspect of money existed before gold coins or anything else became the most common way to do the recording and the transferring And these tokens have never been necessary to the essential function of money which is why about 90% of the money in the United States and 97% in the United Kingdom exists as nothing than computerized accounting entries It is the Constructing Effective Criticism promises not the exchange tokens that make money And it is faith that theromises will be fulfilled not a certain amount of gold that gives money its valueThis need for confidence is robably the most important difference between Martin s narrative of money and the standard version that I began this review with The standard version assumes Martin s narrative of money and the standard version that I began this review with The standard version assumes money has always represented some innate natural value either the value of the gold or silver it is composed of or the value of the gold or silver that backs it or the value of the goods or services that were once traded by barter The new narrative rejects this origin of money and by doing so rejects nearly all of the assumptions of most modern monetary theories and olicies As Martin himself Hall of Mirrors puts itaraphrasing the 19th century economist Walter BagehotIf money is in essence transferable credit rath.
