Martin Wolf summarizes how money works

..in his column for the Financial Times. The only issue I have with this, which he may still address in a future column, is that it makes a difference, to some extent, whether countries have their own currency (like the UK and US) or not (like the Eurozone countries and some former French overseas territories). If you don’t have your own central bank and your own currency, then your government finances are vulnerable.
