Just finished reading this book.  The freakonomics saga continues through street prostitutes, suicide bombers, stories of apathy, global cooling/warming, monkeys with silver discs, drunk walkers, Axyxxi etc etc. 

 

I cracked up when I read that Capuchin monkeys in an experiment about money used it to pay for sex.

It made me wonder - if the experiment had progressed, would monkeys have formed an ETF of silver and traded it to the sky or would have eventually replaced leaf (paper equivalent) money for silver?
