What Chattel slavery is different from other forms of forced labor in that?
The slave is considered chattel - property - to be bought and sold in perpetuity like livestock. Once an individual becomes a chattel slave they are considered chattel for life. Not all forms of forced labor doom a person to slavery until the day they die. Many of them are only for a fixed period of time or until a fixed debt has been redeemed. Children born to chattel slaves are considered the property of the "owner" of the chattel slave just like a calf is the property of the owner of the cow. No other form of forced labor passes that status/lifetime-obligation down to the children.
Is money chattel?
Yes, if you argue the modern catch-all definition of "chattel." Here is the quote from Cornell University Law School's Legal Information Institute: A catch-all category of property mostly associated with movable goods. At common law, chattel included all property that was not real estate and not attached to real estate. Examples included everything from leases, to cows, to clothes. In modern usage, chattel often merely refers to tangible movable personal property. http://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/chattel
