Each week we bring you a new, in-depth exploration of the space where science and society collide. We’re committed to the idea that making an effort to understand the world around you though science and critical thinking can benefit everyone—and lead to better decisions. We want to find out what’s true, what’s left to discover, and why it all matters.

So, the question begs to be asked, how can we use the very innovations that have brought us together to also serve the different needs of people around the world? In Money Travels, we’ll journey across the continents exploring the nuances of real-time payments from place to place ...
