If a new country is to come to existence as a thought experiment, what determines the amount of money that would be needed to bootstrap economic activities?
This question is more of a prodding question in my quest to have a deeper fundamental understanding of what money is.
Basically if I am to understand money at a more fundamental level, what more fundamental level is there but to start from a clean slate: That is a new country coming into existence.
In such a scenario, what amount of money would be printed and released into circulation? What determines the amount?
Answers will be appreciated!
