For as long as humanity has existed, so has the need for some means of exchange. Prior to the existence of modern money, people bartered for their needs, using everything from salt to fishhooks as crude forms of money. As people became more sophisticated, so did methods of exchanging one good for another. As early as 2000 B.C., some of the first "banks" were developed.

This initially intuitively attractive idea is at the basis of the theories of property and the role of government of John Locke and Robert Nozick.
