The invention of money

This is a very interesting listen:


It talks about some of the history of money and how we've taken the fiction of money to new extremes in our digital society.   One interesting set of comments that caught my attention is the necessity of "faith in money" for the system to work.    It leads me to this question:   can a person eschew faith in money and still function as a part of our society?
