MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

For ages, money has meant little metal disks and rectangular slips of paper. Yet the usefulness of physical money—to say nothing of its value—is coming under fire as never before. Intrigued by the distinct possibility that cash will soon disappear, author and Wired contributing editor David Wolman sets out to investigate the future of money…and how it will affect your wallet.

Our guest today was David Wolman, Author of The End of Money. David Wolman is a contributing editor at Wired and the author, most recently, of The End of Money. He has also written for such publications as the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Wall Street JournalTime, Nature, and Outside.
