Who decides the prices you pay?

Throughout history, money has taken many forms: sea shells, sheep, silver, gold, and believe it or not, salt! Today we use coins, paper, and credit cards as money. Travel around the world to learn the history of money, starting with bartering with animals, then the use of early coins in Greece and Rome. See where paper money was invented, and even learn how inflation is caused by the over-printing of paper money.
