    Every economics textbook says the same thing: Money was invented to replace onerous and complicated barter systems - to relieve ancient people from having to haul their goods to market. The problem with this version of history? There’s not a shred of evidence to support it. Here anthropologist David Graeber presents a stunning reversal of conventional wisdom. He shows that for more than 5,000 years, since the beginnings of the first agrarian empires, humans have used elaborate credit systems to buy and sell goods - that is, long before the invention of coins or cash.

    What did you love best about Debt?

    What an eye opener. We apparently reside within an historical cycle cash and credit with all it's benefits and injuries.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The conversation on what Money is is fascinating..


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    The narrator does a fantastic job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This book is an essential part in broadening your understanding of the historical world and why the international community finds itself in the throws of a financial system it cannot fully understand or control.
