Money is making everything go round.

Money solves the mutual coincidence of wants problem.
Which means, among other things, that it better enables individuals to prosper by serving the desires of their fellow men through voluntary exchange, instead of prospering by the theft and plunder of coercive force. Not that it eliminates coercion, mind you; it merely extends the boundaries of the more desirable option.

Challenge accepted. I perceive no relationship between money and the shape of the Earth.

"Earth's rocky core formed first, with heavy elements colliding and binding together. Dense material sank to the center, while the lighter pieces created the crust. The planet's magnetic field probably formed around this time. Gravity captured some of the lighter elements that make up the planet's early atmosphere." How Was Earth Formed? by Nola Taylor Redd, Space.com Contributor | January 08, 2013 12:05pm ET

The Earth was formed long before the existence of man and money.

Enough semantics. I will argue that barter is superior to currency. Barter existed before money and is still used today.
