Marx's Theory of Money and the Theory of Value - Marx's Theory of Money and the Theory of Value The most important point to emerge from Marx's theory of money is the idea that money is a form of value. The difficulty with this idea is that we are more familiar with money itself than with value in other forms. But value does appear in forms other than money. For example, the balance sheet of a capitalist firm estimates the value of goods in process and of fixed capital which has not yet been depreciated, as well as the value of inventories of finished commodities awaiting sale....   [tags: Karl Marx Money Finances Theorists Essays] 5097 words

Honest Money - Honest Money Biblical Principles of Money and Banking Honest Money by Dr. Gary North is about where money originated from, the value of money, and the uses of it. It was written so we may have a better understanding of the value and purposes of money. Daniel Defoe wrote a novel about a man whose ship sank, and who ended up on a deserted island for twenty-eight years. Economists use this book as an illustration about economics. They use it to show that in a world of almost nothing, a person has to make choices about how to achieve his goals and that value is based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions and is dependent on the mind for existence....   [tags: Book Review Gary North Honest Money] 986 words
