Obviously this leads to a problem of infinite regress. The question then remains what determined this 'objective value' of money at first. Mises solved this problem by indicating that a good can only become money if it already possesses exchange value based on some other productive or consumptive function it performs. 12 That is, he explains the value of money by referring to the non-monetary purposes which the money good used to have in the past.
