Money has built society. As a technology for holding and exchanging value, money has evolved over millennia and is therefore fit-for-purpose. Money is the universal incentive-mechanism that holds society together like glue. But money is changing rapidly. This change introduces opportunities to reinvent currency and commerce at a foundational level. This change also offers society the chance to reorganize relationships around common projects. It offers new capabilities for the evolving role of banking in the consumer value-chain. It proposes a new vision for liquidity as a tool to manage growth, stability, and prosperity. It presents the promise of greater economic inclusion across the world. Change also presents peril. It risks undermining centuries of great sacrifice to build the society of today, imperfect as it is; always a work-in-progress. The importance of this topic begs a broad discussion across the public arena. The event seeks to host that conversation. The Future of Money is... now.
