Eliezer, I'm curious about why you think that no "most marketable good"
will emerge in your proposed complex-barter economy. "Most marketable
goods" are indistinguishable from money. Gold and silver were the most
marketable goods that emerged from barter economies of the past in the
Middle East, Europe, China, and elsewhere.
