Economical concepts can be extremely intricate, but Matthew Scott’s new children’s book The Illusion of Money breaks down the creation and functioning of money into simpler terms for the young reader. The plot is lighthearted and centers around a kingdom that acquires a new ruler; he creates the concept of paper money allegedly backed by gold. It is a fun story that essentially gets children to think about how money works without getting too complex. Tune in to hear more about Scott’s book and some of the inspiration behind the story.
