We tend to think about money in terms of dollars and cents, something quantifiable that we either do or do not have enough of. But money is not only legal tender, it is emotional currency as well. The range of emotional responses to money and the meaning it carries—as well as the ways we use money to express our feelings—are almost limitless.
It’s easy to get confused about money and difficult to be emotionally balanced about it in our culture. By looking at money intimately through story, psychology, and conversation, Emotional Currency ™ offers an approach to becoming more emotionally balanced about money. Through this process, we come to understand ourselves and the world better.
