Money offers perspectives on money in many of its manifestations: the tangible, the abstract, the necessary, the luxuriant, the identity-formative, the ethical. There are pieces that discuss having a lot of money and pieces that describe having very little. Included are humor, satire, lamentations, analyses, explorations, and complaints. The selections represent a variety of voices with a variety of concerns. These writers explain how money functions, how the middle class has changed over a generation, why college costs so much, and why minimum wage workers can t always just pull themselves up by their bootstraps. These articles, excerpts, songs, and images will give students a wider perspective on money as an incredibly powerful entity from the economic systems that make it work, to the social systems that can t work without it, to the people on whom money works its influence.
