The Money Project, founded in 2015, aims to use intuitive visualizations to explore ideas around the very concept of money itself.
Through the Money Project website, we will be posting dozens of individual and original content pieces ranging from infographics to data visualizations which will detail everything on the subject of money. We will look at the evolving nature of money, and try to answer the difficult questions that prevent us from truly understanding the role that money plays in finance, investments, and accumulating wealth.
The Money Project’s founding partners are Visual Capitalist and Texas Precious Metals.
Visual Capitalist is a leading financial media site that creates and curates enriched visual content focused on emerging trends in business and investing.
Texas Precious Metals (TPM) is a spinoff of Kaspar Companies, owned and operated by the Kaspar fifth generation. Since 1898, the Kaspar Family of Companies has been doing business the right way in southern Texas. We’re proud to say that our family of businesses spans twenty recessions, one depression, two world wars, oil embargoes, steel shortages, and twenty presidential administrations. Texas Precious Metals started as a precious metals wholesaler, selling gold and silver bullion exclusively to coin shops and local retailers. In May 2011, TPM expanded into the retail market. In 2014, Texas Precious Metals was recognized as the #1 Fastest Growing Aggie-owned or led business in the world by Texas A&M University, and in 2015 by Inc. 500 as the #200 Fastest Growing Private Company in America. We achieved this recognition by doing business differently than other precious metals dealers. With low premiums, free shipping, spectacular products, and fanatical customer service, there is no other company like Texas Precious Metals. To help ease the anxiety of purchasing bullion online, we reinvented our industry by focusing on the delivery speed of packages. We sell only what we have in stock, and we are the only dealer that ships all packages via overnight delivery. We are recognized by the United States Mint as a national bullion dealer and a market maker for US Mint products. We are also a national distributor for the Perth Mint of Australia.
