Wouldn’t you agree that the need for exchange (i.e. need for liquidity) is one of most basic human needs? A theory that doesn´t need to make special cases to fully explain reality is a simpler and more general theory. I encourage you to read Austrian-Mengerian Carlos Bondone’s work, who departing from Menger develops a theory that explains money the same way than any other economic good.
