An archives reader asked me:

For a different perspective on the issue of the money commodity,
see some of the writings of (OPE-L members) Claus Magno Germer

Undoubtedly, I've missed a bunch of 'recent' sources (which I am
interpreting, because its the earliest date for the sources above,
as 1994 or after).  Perhaps our 'editors', including Paul Z, David
L, and Gary M could suggest other references? Could other
listmembers give this comrade some suggestions for further reading?

Please don't feel shy about suggesting your own writings.

In solidarity, Jerry
