    Lunatic Faith, Computer Digits, & the Myth of Money

    This American Life and Planet Money recently produced an episode titled “The Invention of Money.” You can listen to it here.

    The story places the concept of money into the framework of faith, mainly due to the fact that money is no longer a physical object with tangible value like gold. Instead, it is fiction, myth, a number generated on a computer, passing through the internet.

Host Glynn Washington told an autobiographical story that made for an incredible illustration of grace, of love begetting love.
