This is an article I wrote for the Mises Institute on my observations of commodity money in a small farming and fishing village in Iraq.
In 2007 I did a seven-month deployment to Iraq. I was posted in multiple farming and fishing villages in al Anbar province. However, I do not wish to discuss the war or national defense. I want to concentrate on what, in my estimation, was a much more important issue to the people in the villages: money.Please leave any thoughts and comments below, I welcome your feedback.
