Synopsis

What does money mean? Where does it come from and how does it work? In this highly topical book, Mary Mellor, an expert on money, examines money's social, political and commercial histories to debunk longstanding myths such as money being in short supply and needing to come from somewhere. Arguing that money's immense social value means that its creation and circulation should be a matter of democratic choice, she sets out a new finance system, based on green and feminist concerns, to bring radical change for social good.
