[quote:Anonymous Coward 590644:MV85ODA3ODlfMzQ5MTk0MjlfMkI1MDU5MjE=] [b]Origin of the Communication Theory of Money[/b] It probably began with the Canadian Harold Innis: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Innis#Communications_theories Marshall McLuhan was a contemporary and colleague of Innis: [i]"His intellectual disciple and university colleague, Marshall McLuhan, lamented Innis's premature death as a disastrous loss for human understanding."[/i] I have a couple of Marshall McLuhan's books and referenced them for the second time after reading what Prof. Robert Blaine (University of southern Illinois - retired) wrote about McLuhan: [i]"The symbols variable includes four types; speech, writing, numbers, and money. In that order, they carry decreasing amounts of information, increasing distances. The invention of writing reduced entropy because people could write their messages in a more durable form than the sound waves of spoken language. Simon Dinitz, a colleague at Ohio State, suggested that Marshall McLuhan´s, Understanding Media: Extensions of Man (1964) might be helpful to me. McLuhan suggested that money was a form of communication like speech and writing. Parsons also had suggested that money was a medium of communication, especially important in the transactions that occur between households and business firms. After reading a small paperback by a retired dentist, Dr. Edward Popp, Money: Bona Fide and Non-Bona Fide, (1970) I understood money as a medium of communication that conveyed less information than ordinary writing but longer information chain distances. This relation of money to speech and writing was reinforced by how easily the economic concepts of inflation and money velocity fit the paradigm. Inflation is loss of value, that is, loss of information, with money. Money velocity is the number of times money changes hands in a given time period, that is, information chain length."[/i] Eric Harris-Braun is recognizing and speaking out about money as a communication: https://www.google.com/search?q="Arthur+Brock"+"Eric+Harris-Braun" Blog: http://eric.harris-braun.com/blog/ http://metacurrency.org/de/node/32 [i]"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."[/i] [/quote]
