Hi, Cointalkers, I just joined Cointalk and would like to kick things off and get acquainted with everyone through a contest.
I wrote a children's picture book on the monetary system called Treasure Hunt in the Enchanted Forest: The Search for Good Money. It covers some of the evolutionary history of the money supply, the qualities of good and bad money (see attached image for a matrix comparing different sorts of "money" a kid might come up with and their respective qualities), Gresham's Law, and sets kids on a real life treasure hunt.
To enter the contest to win a copy of the book, simply reply to this thread with what you think is the most important thing to tell a child about money (it can be practical or philosophical - have fun with it!). I'll pick my favorite answer.
The contest will be open through May 10th. Looking forward to hearing from you!
