E0006 1/4: Thermodynamics & The Three Functions Of Money: What Is Value?

This is the first of the four-part series, “Thermodynamics & The Three Functions Of Money”.

This first quarter-episode is titled, ‘What Is Value?”
It turns out that value is quite a bit trickier to quantify than one might think. In order to inspect the three functions of money through the lens of thermodynamics, we have to first find a way to objectively quantify value.

This episode details that specific reduction. The ideas in this episode are crucial to understand before addressing the topics of the next three episodes.
