Money Wisdom #122

" considerably expands the capacity of individuals to stabilise their own personal identity by holding something durable that embodies the desires and wealth of all other members of society.... ....Communities exist by virtue of their members' ability to exchange meanings that are substantially shared between them. There seems little doubt that money is an important vehicle for this."

Keith Hart Money in an Unequal World (2000) p.259
