The Invention of Money


This segment of “This American Life” is actually quite good and might be worth assigning to principle of economics classes as an introduction to the topic of money. They begin with “the most stoner question we have ever posed on this show” and they get all the way to including Ron Paul.

Mark Thornton is a Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute and the book review editor of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics. He has authored seven books and is a frequent guest on national radio shows.
