Martin Armstrong — The First Representative Form of Money

Summary:
Egypt’s monetary system began with barter. It was primarily based on agriculture – grain. This evolved into official Graineries and a farmer would then take his crop to the Grainery and receive a receipt. With time, the monetary system evolved where people would then accept these receipts (paper money) in payment. The receipt  would have been a credit slip representing the liability of the granary.Armstrong EconomicsThe First Representative Form of Money Martin Armstrong
