I've always understood "monies" to be the plural of the plural of money -- the plural of money being money.

It's normally an uncountable noun, but I guess in this case it's to refer multiple uncountable nouns.

Peoples is a plural of a plural.I'm trying to think of when I've ever heard that used. And if it is, it's just as unnecessary as "monies."

Well, the economy is in the ****ter. :shrug:

More public funding for a millionaire in a million-dollar business. Whatever. I'd sway too deep into politics if I wrote how I really feel.
