Money is fictional. We made it up and it’s a broken system. The stories we tell each other about money are based on the false idea that it has a limited supply. That we need to work all our lives and exchange time for money. But we also know that banks are able to create value out of thin air. How can both be true? It’s time to learn the history of money and our current financial system so you can navigate with confidence.
