Take a moment and think about what money is. Then take a moment to recognize that there is a constitutional structure behind the medium of exchange we call ‘money.’ It may seem an esoteric question.

Much of our lives are centered around economic activity and the medium of exchange we use for that activity, so why not ask fundamental questions about the origins and meaning of money just as we do the origins and meaning of illness? It seems there is much more mythmaking when it comes to money than bacteria, viruses and the like. Give this podcast a listen. I do believe this might be the single best podcast George has yet run.
