The Limits of Money

Three Perceptions of Our Most Comprehensive Value System

The Limits of Money examines money as a historical phenomenon and speculates on its future possibilities and limitations. The volume opens with a concise history of monetary systems and then examines how the advent of numbers transformed money into the main determinant of fiscal value. Simon Goudsmit concludes by looking at the tension between the power of financial incentives and the civic structures and behaviors needed to maintain Western democracy.

The Limits of Money is an intriguing and much-needed study of the role of money in daily life and human societies.
