Rohit Parikh advocates a collaboration between logicians, philosophers, computer scientists and game theorists, in an effort to use the techniques from their fields to shed light on social phenomena, in his well known plea for social software. So far, this enterprise has largely neglected a topic of key importance: money. What is money, how is it created, how does it disappear, and how does it shape our society? The paper takes on these questions in the form of a discourse where participants from a variety of backgrounds shine their lights on them.
