Money Makes The World Go Round...
Saying something with a fist full of cash just isn’t the same as saying it with a fist full of skin. Money talks.
But what does it say? And should we be listening?
The bible says the love of money is the root of all evil. Is money itself the problem or just our obsession with it?
So many things in our world are decided by money. How did we even get here? How can we justify someone being born rich and another person being born poor? How much is a billion dollars? How much is 20 bucks to someone who hasn’t eaten in a week?
There are two sides to every coin: the haves and the have nots. But coins exist in alternate dimensions too, as global capital, as speculative investment, as personal and national debt. How much do you owe anyway?
What would you do for money? What should you do for money? What does money do for you? What does it do to you?
A lot of visual artists critique money, even though some paintings sell for as much as 250 million dollars! But here’s a bank of imaginary art money that asks “what if love was the root of all money?”
Pop music seems to be obsessed with money these days. It used to be some singers sang about being millionaires as a joke. Now they sing about being billionaires and mean it, while some kings of bling actually are. Though other rappers reject hip hop’s fixation with getting rich or die trying.
Some people are trying to replace money with barter economies and some strange gift economies are thriving. Kiva.org has built a global microfinance system to help people who have money in rich countries to help people in poor countries start businesses. Meanwhile Kickstarter, Indiegogo and other crowdsourcing platforms are enabling fans to finance their favorite artists lives and projects directly. Is the internet changing money forever?
