Lecture: The Invention of Money

As much as we take it for granted (it’s the water we swim in), the world’s economy is a fiction as unreal and imaginary as anything Joss Whedon or Neil Gaiman every dreamed up, and the language it speaks, its money, its currencies, are gibberish—totally intangible except as coins and bills, but illusory—just social constructs with numbers attached to help us keep track of how much to tip the Uber driver.

    warm-up riddle like a scotch bottle that has been empty. Despite being incorrectly constructed, the sentence nonetheless sounds reasonable. Based on the bipartisan groups, we can observe that our extraordinary system is a result of a perpetual party struggle. There is no clear winner, and the tiebreaker cannot separate a 50/50 decision between both the two.
    A category called “Feedback Please” is used to let the professor know that a piece of writing is noteworthy. It is typically used after the initial assessment when you would like to make improvements and resubmit it in an effort to receive a higher grade.
    -There is a difference between citing a resource and providing background information. We employ informal in-text citation in this course (APA Style). information like the journal’s name and the author.

    The in-text citation and a link to the URL will be included by fitting the information from a source into the syntax of our sentences.

    The goal is to incorporate the material from the source into your sentences while maintaining a smooth flow that will keep the reader interested throughout the in-text reference.

    As long as you give the reader enough details about the source that they could use plain language to find it.

    Money is a myth. The stone currency broadcast explains the perplexing notion. The imaginary idea is expanding daily.
