Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk discuss money and economics, starting with the building of centralized economic systems and the three functions of currency: why it is or isn't used. They talk about the mercantile revolution of the West, living in a "gift-economy" and avoiding debt, the unnatural aspects and historical uses of money, and the innovation of lending.
