Appears in this episode

Every week Dr. Koontz and RevFisk check their privilege against the backdrop of the wide and varied annals of history.
Episode details

Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk discuss money and economics, starting with the building of centralized economic systems and the three functions of currency: why it is or isn't used. They talk about the mercantile revolution of the West, living in a "gift-economy" and avoiding debt, the unnatural aspects and historical uses of money, and the innovation of lending.
