History of Money. Where did money come from? Story No. 2

Richard Trudgen and Djiniyini Gondarra talk the history of money around the world.

In this podcast we discuss how Balanda started to explore the world, building bigger boats so they could travel further to trade in other lands in pursuit of wealth. Balanda carried metal such as axes and saucepans to countries like India where they traded for cotton and tea. No money in those days, just trading different items with each other.

Sometimes alliances needed to be formed and gifts given to keep peace and friendship between trading countries/groups. This was part of good trade practices and the creation of wealthy nations, particularly England.
