“The Theoretical definition of money is: money is anything that people accept as money. Thus money is a social convention: an organe bit of paper with the Queen’s picture on it is worth 10 pounds because people in Britain have agreed that it should be so. My cheque is money if you are prepared to accept it, and not otherwise.” — Dr Nicholas Barr
