Basics First introduces an innovative way of thinking about money. Sema and Manu Dube argue that we do away with regulations, allow people to travel wherever they want and trade freely. Simple enough, but trade will never be free if one party cannot walk away because to do so would threaten their survival. This book aims to be a seed for a discussion where everyone can participate, by showing that it could be possible to change our systems for the better if we focus on the basics first. It is all about money. About how we choose to define it.
