In "Broken Money," Lyn Alden examines the evolution of money through technology, tracing its development from early forms like shells to modern innovations such as Bitcoin. The book explores the essence and future of money, arguing that while politics influence monetary systems temporarily, technology drives lasting, global change. Alden delves into critical questions about where money originated and what it fundamentally represents.
