It's not the paper. It's not the money. It's the
agreed upon perceived value in exchange for product
or services rendered.

It's a nice tool.

I don't want to have to take a pig to market.

Why would you need a market if there is no money?

Why not gow your own food and make your own goods?

Most of the money in existence isn't printed.

It's called Division of Labor.

In the aggregate society is much more productive
and inventive.

We don't need Albert Einstein to
divert all his resources to protecting his carrot
garden from B'rer Rabbit.

We don't want Van Gogh to have missed the idle
moment on ear surgery.

We don't want Thomas Edison to take time out
to walk his pigs to market in exchange for another
necessary service.

Division of Labor.

It's what's for Civilization evolution.
