In this quote, Joichi Ito is pointing out that the exchange of money in a transaction creates an inherent power dynamic between the two parties. The person or entity providing payment gains a position of influence over the recipient of funds.

Ito suggests that the “payer” is able to exert control and set expectations by virtue of their financial support. The “payee” meanwhile enters a relationship where they rely on and must consider the interests of the source of their compensation.

The quote acknowledges that money introduces an aspect of power, control and dependence between individuals or groups even in voluntary, agreed upon exchanges.
