Before the Roman Alphabet, (the writing system which I am at this moment typing in), there were other alphabets, and before those alphabets, no alphabets at all. Why am I, in this opening to an economy of 200 to 400 words I volunteered to write on the subject of Money, writing this?

When people use the phrase, “Money talks,” they mean that wealth gives power and influence to those who possess it. Differing from this, the title of this introductory post is named this because I hope it can serve as a beginning of a conversation about how value exceeds itself, how value is created, is a necessary expansion of any conversation, doubling, sequences, how one without two is impossible, the feasible revision.
