Today's property, our last but one in this world history through things, is indeed a credit card. To date, this weeks I have selected items with which to study some of the most important aspects of 20th-Century life - sexual and reproductive health, revolutions, war and the consequences of it.
Today' modernity' ultimate monetary power is neither metals nor papers, it's not really cash at all, it's a pledge in plastics. All of us know the dimension of this special sculpture, because every credit card in the whole wide globe has the same international dimension and form, so they all match the "holes in the wall" that now permeate our metropolitan area.
It has pointed out the name of the bank and the common set of numbers that identifies it, and us as users. Almost gravity-free, this piece of sculpture is rich in golden value. Neither of us will ever see the cash we have been saving - it just seems like long rows of numbers on bank slips and receipt cards.

Now like never before, we are free to travel around the world, but most of us have no clue how this system of transferring funds actually works. More importantly, we do not know who is tracking our expenses or what they are doing with the information we collect.
We know only one thing: The banking institutions that make this new tech possible are far beyond anything we have known before and their powers on a world scale cross borders. However, the different is that the back of the credit card contains information that we cannot view.

Hopefully everyone will be in agreement that it earns its place in this world history through things.
