The Myth Salon
The Secret Life of Money
Myths, Archetypes, Folk Tales and More

Drawing on myths and history, folklore and folk tales, anthropology and Jungian psychology, Tad Crawford explores money from early offerings of thanks for the divine bounty of nature to treasuries at the sanctuary of Delphi to the Goddess Moneta and the innumerable forms of money. Offering delightful retellings and searching analyses of stories such as Midas, Dorothy on the Golden Road, Scrooge, and the Bulls and Bears of Wall Street, he delves into sacrifice, hoarding, supply, debt, inheritance, and changing symbols in a quest to discover what money means at the deepest levels of the psyche.
