When I ask people How do we Make Money? they sometimes feel puzzled, feel as if I was asking some trick question or a stupid question. Some proceed to answer like “we can make money by working and earning salary, by doing a business, through stock market,…” And then when I say, “but these are all ways of getting money that’s already made!”, they are a little puzzled. I ask “Do we know the process of actually making money, in the sense of creating it, like making a painting, cooking a dish, or growing mangos?” this often leads to some exploration of the origins of money that take us towards barter system etc.
