Moreover, money's circulation advantages communities and empowers us individually, regardless of personal wealth. Notwithstanding personal "net worth," schools, parks, roads, technological and scientific advances, literature, art, stores, theatres, restaurants, streetscapes, and so on, are all generally universally accessible regardless of means. Money's circulation typically accrues to some form of "we," not just particular individuals.

For many of us, this requires rethinking, plus something more. This may even require redefining notions of individuality, fear, security, competition ... and stereotypes and financial prejudices. It most assuredly requires restructuring governing metaphors and our perceptions of socio-political ecology.

Somewhere, somehow, some way, genuine financial literacy appears essential for functional human ecosystems. As with nature's ecologies, our various economies reflect sensitive balances and interdependencies. Money is essential to their very life, our very life. And so it is with Interior Finance in the lower left, the quadrant of the interior "we."

There is no guarantee that our social order will function. We can blow it big time. It's been done. Money's misuse or abuse has consequences. Financial illiteracy, failures to grasp costs and consequences, and inabilities to get beyond Wish List thinking cannot be sustained. Financial skills are 21st century survival skills for both communities and individuals.

Money is consistently overlooked, disrespected or abused. We act as though it can be shaved (see Gresham's Law), negotiated, dissed or ignored. This is where we connect with the social aspects of Interior Finance.

It's not nice to mess with money. It has a way of messing back. When it messes back, people get hurt.

What to do? What of our communities and money? From couples to continents, Interior Finance is not just personal. It is not merely a matter of our individual earning and spending. It is relationships. It is the body social. It is essence.

Interior Finance enables us to look at shared money as it is. Interior Finance is essential to a healthy body social.

Screaming won't make it better. Name-calling won't make it better. Ignoring it won't make it better. Calling it "only money" doesn't get it done. Conversations of perspective, thoughtfulness, care, intelligence with literacy and judgment-now that would be a start.

There is literally nothing more vital to the body social than valid, viable, non-ideological conversations around money's applications within our communities and earnest attempts to collectively understand its functions and applications. Ideologies don't cut it. Money does not care.
