What is Medium of Exchange?

A medium of exchange is a device or system that acts as a middleman in transactions involving the exchange of commodities between parties. A system must represent a standard of value in order to serve as a medium of exchange. All parties must concur to that norm as well. Currency serves as the primary means of trade in modern economies.
