Different schools of economics have pushed their theories on the origins and functions of money with the fevered eagerness of religious fanatics. To the average person, not much of what any of them say makes sense. That is because it doesn't. All schools of money have based their theories on flawed perceptions, best guesses and an academic casualness that makes tea-leaf reading look like a disciplined science. 'Dawn of Gold' unravels the confused tangle of knotted theories and produces for the first time the radically different, but real story of money. 'Dawn of Gold' is Money 101. It needs to be bought, read and understood by every student of not just money, but life.
