Working on my book Destiny’s Hand I struggled with the concept of currency. I wondered if money was even necessary with only a thousand people isolated for fifty generations.
My son gets a dollar a week and five dollars a tooth. He doesn’t need money. We provide his basic necessities and many amenities.
He wants money. It gives him choices. He collects it and counts it. He brushes his teeth extra to improve their value for when it’s time to trade with the tooth fairy.
