The methodological and theoretical underpinning of the paintings is that the learn of cash be traditionally trained, and that there exists a ‘state conception of cash’ that gives another framework to the ‘orthodox’ view of money’s origins.


The contexts for analysing the creation of cash at numerous old junctures contain historical Greece, British colonial dependencies within the 19th and early 20th century, and native groups which introduce ‘alternative’ currencies. The ebook argues that, even though cash isn't essentially an ‘economic’ phenomenon (associated with marketplace exchange), it has profound implications (amongst others, financial implications) for societies and behavior of human inspiration and action.
