Mommy, where does money come from?

I don't think the following two videos answer that question, but the way they challenge ones presumptions about economy, society and money is alone worth its weight in gold. Make sure you watch them in exactly the order they appear, though:
Money as debt, by Paul Grignon:

Zeitgeist, The Movie:

P.S. I would be very interested in getting pointers to anything even remotely resembling mathematical theory behind money-as-debt concept. Any suggestions?
Comments:

You have blown my mind. I don't personally have any debts. But what about my government and my corporation? And they effectively own me.

On the other hand I strongly believe in the godly mission of the humanity to see all the universe and testify the perfection of the god's creation :)

And correspondingly I don't believe in the stable society as the the stagnation leads to the decay and death. So instead of lamenting on limited resources it's better to find a way to keep up the pace of exponential growth with extra terrestrial expansion :)

But the humanity needs a really BIG stimulator to do so.
