Money. We obsess about it in a material sense, but we don't know much about it on a deeper level. We know it makes the world go 'round, but do we really understand how? It's what we want, but why? Coined is a colorful take on the history of money and its meaning in our lives. Kabir Sehgal's voice and vision are unique products of his sophisticated grasp of the subject-he is both a keen observer of and a high-stakes player in the global economic continuum. Sehgal is an approachable, authoritative guide to an unprecedented interdisciplinary safari, in which listeners will learn how money and our intrinsic compulsion to value and exchange is fundamental to our survival. Exploring topics like the ancient Vedic notion of debt, monkeys who understand fruit juice as currency, the neuroscience of gambling, money in art, and many more ideas, Coined mixes stories from the front lines of global currency exchange with extensive, thoughtful research. With often surprising and thought-provoking anecdotes and research, Coined presents an entertaining, multidimensional portrait of currency through the ages.
