What is Money? This Infographic Makes it Clear

Joel Anderson  |

With public discourse currently dominated by discussions of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, their parody-turned-reality cousins like dogecoin, and the persistant belief by certain politicians that a return to the gold standard would represent anything less than a complete disaster, the issue of what money actually is has become a question more people are considering. It's a question rooted in everything from macroeconomics to behavioral psychology to philosophy, and it's one this infographic from BuddyLoans tries to tackle.
