Talk about the economy can be taxing. Lucky for us (and listeners), NPR's Planet Money makes it possible to understand finance without being a world-renowned economist.

Earlier this month, Adam Davidson, Alex Blumberg, David Kestenbaum, Chana Jaffe-Walt and Jacob Goldstein from Planet Money took the stage at the 92nd St. Y in New York City to do just that: Explain the modern economy.

The evening's hosts walked their audience through money, past and present, in three acts. Check out photos from the night:
