So when putting out discount tokens on the cards, couldn't you instead use money tokens? Is there a difference between the two? You would think that you don't even need discount tokens and just could of printed more money tokens for game play.

its just thematic!, better to have a discount token than use extra coins.
why have circus performers and not just math/resource cards?.

Also it's a "discount" , the tokens do not come to you, if it were coins the mistake could easily be made that they come to you to spend.
Discount tokens are only ever put on personnel or performer cards - or now some of the newer performers can give you discount tokens to spend on either performers or personnel.

Money implies a reward for choosing the performer.

The maximum discount is equal to the cost of the performer, it is then discarded if no one chooses it. If it were money, it would not be as clear that there is this limit.

You don't need enough money to pay the full cost of the performer if it is discounted. A money reward implies that you need to pay the cost, then collect the money.
