À quoi sert notre argent ?
What is our money used for?

Finance and its inner workings play a leading role in modern society. Today, given the ever-growing number of crises, we are starting to view money differently. How do banks use it? Does it serve the real economy, can it be virtuous? And what about cash, cryptocurrencies and tax havens?

Guest: Éric Heyer, French economist; Roland Gillet, professor of financial economics at the Sorbonne and at the Free University of Brussels.

Presented by: Dominique Laresche.
