Why are coins … round? It used to be, waaay back, there were more irregularly shaped, and even squared coins. But now there are only a few countries that do this. The Bahamanian 15 cent coin was minted until 2005; The Netherlands Antilles 5 cent piece got axed in 1985, but their 50c piece is still in production! There are a few others - but not many! Our money has the physical properties it does because, given the fervor of life, it’s gotta go fast. The circle is a convenient shape for coin speed; the rectangle, for similar reasons, for bills. But... there is a point at which, if money needs to move VERY quickly, it has to become something else entirely. That’s basically what we’re gonna talk about in this episode: how what we want money to be able to DO determines what it IS… and how what money is then determines, how we live. So join us today as we head to Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange and beyond!
