It is as old as the world and without it, exchanges would be impossible in the complex societies that are ours…
To have confidence in one’s currency is to have confidence in the world in which it circulates, today and tomorrow. A world structured by central banks and the order they define.
Does this order only have good sides? Would there be less inequality in a world without currencies? Does the emergence of cryptocurrencies herald a deep questioning or just a speculative bubble with devastating effects? To advance on the answers, this meeting will take the path of history and that of mathematics.
