Very interesting (I suspect the grammar of the following sentence is out of order: "Rather, what I am interested in is the structure of Locke's underlying argument that money is valuable is a convention.")


Thank you, Josef. I corrected the passage in light of your suspicion.


It's been a long time since I read it (more than 15 years, I think) so I don't remember if Locke is discussed at all, and I don't have easy access to it now, but you might find something of interest in this paper by Samuel Freeman:

"Property as an Institutional Convention in Hume's Account of Justice," Archiv für
Geschichte der Philosophie, vol.73, no.1, 1991, pp.20-49.
