History of Money by Jack Weatherford

The History of Money is written by pop-anthropologist Jack Weatherford. Many well-told stories. We watch "monetized" cacao beans underwrite the ripped-out, still-beating hearts of Aztec sacrifices. We think through the cash/coin monies of the American poor vs. the plastic money of the American rich; see the entanglement of prostitutes in sacred temples of the Middle East and donations of golden coins to the gods. Weatherford provides a clear sketch of how national governments are subverted by the global fungibility of electronic pulses. A breezy read.
