One of the hosts of NPR’s legendary “Planet Money” takes us on a whirlwind tour of some of the key moments of money history in the last 1,000 years.
In this conversation, Jacob and NLW discuss:
- How China invented paper money and then forgot about it for centuries
- Why the invention of the lightbulb was a pivotal money history moment
- How money market funds set the stage for the Great Financial Crisis
- Where bitcoin fits in the world that comes next: without cash, without banks and with government printing
