Jeff Deist and Peter St. Onge discuss some of the fundamental questions about money in this electronic age. What do Menger and Mises tell us about the origins of money? How do we define it? What's the difference between "money" and a "medium of exchange"? And, was Hayek right about degrees of "moneyness"?
