PRISON MONEY and "MONEY"
Humans always create economic exchange
systems or some sort, and there are always humans who are judged by other
humans to be in need of restraint. Throughout the world prison authorities
have tried different systems of controlling the economic transactions of
the people in their custody, and these attempts have produced plenty of
collectible tokens, chits, etc. for the delectation and amusement of those
of us who are subject to a lesser degree of official oversight.
