People made things and collaborated and traded before there was a concept of money. You can have ownership without money.

Currency is just a tool to facilitate some of those things. The world could go on without currency. The aluminum miners could trade their aluminum for fruit or whatever, the computer programmers could trade for aluminum, then trade that for wheels, trade the wheels for cows, trade the cows for gasoline. I don't think it would be a matter of mining your own oil.

Money makes some of those activities more efficient in a dynamic environment. If things never changed, you could bypass money and not lose much efficiency.

It only has value because lots of people believe in it, which in my book makes it a marketed non-physical thing. Some of you might know that money used to actually represent a share of some quantity of gold, which was a physical resource of course.

Since money's a tool, available in limited number, I'd call it a resource.
