    Well, before there was actual currency, people traded items. It would probably be a much more primitive and hard to use system, but it would probably be peaceful.

    We'd all be much, much, much poorer. Life expectancy, infant mortality, would be far worst. To say nothing of the fact the great contemporary arts -- film, opera, architecture, etc. -- would either not exist or be a faint image of what they've achieved to date.

    Source(s): Many, many sources, but Niall Ferguson's recent book, The Ascent of Money, is a great place to start.
