Money and the univocity of being

“Money, in modernity, is the institutionalization of univocity of being that Scotus thought necessary to ensure the unmediated knowledge of God.” [S. Hauerwas, "The Christian Difference" 149.] See the whole brilliant article for an explanation of this. Who would have thought that metaphysics might have such historical consequences?

What a claim! Did this perspective find representation in the ACPI meeting on money?
