About this book
Martin takes us to the heart of society's misunderstanding of money and sets us straight. Man may have invented money, but we no longer understand it, and Martin seeks to dispel this cloud of misconception.
What is money, and how does it work? The conventional answer is that people once used sugar in the West Indies, tobacco in Virginia, and dried cod in Newfoundland, and that today's financial universe evolved from barter. This title tells a history and explains the truth about money: what it is, where it comes from, and how it works.
