What Is Money, Anyway?

Ah, it's that time of year again - everyone's favourite season. INCOME TAX SEASON. My oh my, just the sound of those three words is enough to make any working person sigh contentedly and think of those joyful months of February through April, where we communally experience that magical thing we call "doing our income taxes". With all those long hours of confusing-but-exhilarating number crunching (and who doesn't love a challenge?) and barely understandable little rules and exceptions (but figuring them out is fun!), combined with the excitement and suspense of waiting to find out whether you'll have to pay MORE taxes rather than getting money back, I think it's safe to say that EVERYONE loves this season way more than any other annual holiday or event, including Christmas. VIVA INCOME TAX SEASON!

So, since we just can't seem to get enough "money talk" this time of year, and never get tired of thinking about it, let's delve a bit deeper into the history of money itself with a fun little audio presentation called "What Is Money, Anyway?", brought to us by the good folks at Standard Life. A great way to make the already super-fun INCOME TAX SEASON even more super-fun!

As a Canadian production, this program is also offered en francais with the title "L'Argent, C'est Quoi En Realité?".
