News from Nowhere
Today, you studied a new example of society and explained what makes it so particular:
Here is what you said about it:
The text deals with a future society in London where people don't use money. It's about a conversation between a boatman and the narrator who wants to pay the waterman for his service which consists in carrying him accross the Thames. However, the boatman is puzzled/bewildered because he doesn't know how to manage money. Moreover, money is a source of trouble. So, it's a cultural misunderstanding.
Thirteen years later, we still use money, so, the future society of 2003 is a utopia.
