Many moons ago the planet was built on a very basic system of barter agreements – trading a basic commodity for another commodity. A concept perhaps founded in the Stone Age and since manipulated into a complex exchange for money, other money-backed commodities and indexes.

There have been a ton of movies and television shows based on the subject of money. In general the majority of such productions seem to focus on the link between power and money, a formula well utilised in Hollywood.
