Money Myths - Ways of thinking

The process by which banks create money is so simple that the mind is repelled. J.K. Galbraith
Ways of thinking
Money by analogy
While rugby scoreboards and the game of Monopoly are not money systems, thinking about them as analogous to a true money system can be useful in clarifying the myths around money.

If something seems daft when viewed from the perspective of a rugby match - like running out of points - one can then ask whether this is a limitation of the analogy, or whether there is a fundamental misunderstanding of the nature of money.
