Jules Renard seems to be suggesting that one of the defining characteristics of human beings compared to other animals is our ability to experience financial anxiety and worries related to money.

While other creatures focus on basic survival needs, Renard implies that humans have a higher cognitive capacity which allows contemplating monetary concerns like saving, spending, debt, retirement, and more.

The quote acknowledges that this financial literacy makes people uniquely able to understand complex economic systems, but also subjects us to stresses over personal fiscal responsibilities that other species do not endure.

In essence, Renard appears to be observing that managing monetary affairs is a distinctly human preoccupation, for better or worse, that separates people from the rest of the animal kingdom.
