The Corruption of Money (Part 1): bartering to early banking

In this first of 2 programs on money and banking I explore the economic challenges of prehistoric societies and how the development of agriculture, markets, currencies and early banking promoted wealth creation. I also highlight the challenges and risks of the ancient banking practices.

This program is foundational to understanding the social and economic importance of money.
