Theories of the Origins of Money

The monetary phenomenon is one of the most complex orders in human societies. The current dominant architecture of financial systems around the world may prove problematic in light of possible future developments in this domain. To understand the monetary phenomenon requires an understanding of the reasons for its emergence. My project is therefore to develop a critical account of existing theories of the origins of money.
