A History of Money

At its most basic level, money is simply a unit of measurement and a convenient means of exchange. At its deepest level, money is a measurement of trust and community. In the history of money we can study what and why people desired or valued different things. The story of money is a story of both greed and charity. In the pursuit of money there have been great innovations and great crimes. In this class we will study the history of money as a history of cultures, peoples, and material effects.
