[quote:Anonymous Coward 3131543:MV85ODA3ODlfMzQ3NTQ4NjVfNzI3MDM2MDc=] Eric Harris-Braun 10/22/2010 looking forward => http://www.metacurrency.org/blog/2010/10/22/money-information-wealth-literacy Read the entire piece, but focus on this powerful paragraph: “When I was growing up in Ecuador, I remember being in the marketplace where I saw a man sitting at a table with a pen and paper. He was listening to a customer and was writing away like mad. I remember not understanding what that man was selling. Was he composing a poem on the spot? I couldn't imagine the visibly poor customer wanting a poem. So I asked my parents who told me that he was selling the writing itself; that the customer was illiterate and needed to send a letter and so would pay the man to write the letter. I remember being amazed by this at the time, but then forgot about it pretty quickly. This story comes back to me now that I've come to understand that almost all of us in the world are doing exactly the same thing as those illiterate customers I saw in my youth. We are illiterate and don't even know it. We don't recognize that there is a form of "writing" we hire others to do for us but could learn ourselves. This form of writing is the writing of wealth acknowledgments, and what we call it is money.” Eric Harris-Braun goes on to describe money as a writing; I have been calling money a communication.
