FC 04-13-18: Whose Money, Our Money

Tonight, we will ask a question so fundamental, that it rarely, if ever occurs to us … Just what is money?

On tonight’s show:

• We’ll learn about the creation of money, who gets to create it, and how it circulates in our society.

• And just what is a bank? Why do most of us entrust our funds, our money to them?

• Also… is there a difference between credit and money? And who made the rules about debt and repayment.

• All that tonight on Full Circle.
