What is Money?


We all come into this world knowing nothing about anything.

Even the well educated, cultured, widely travelled, communicative and long living members of our society will go out of this world knowing nothing about a great deal, some of which could even be quite basic to our society.

Bearing in mind that money was created in the first instance as a means of exchange, it developed throughout history as something of universal value even when it might never be exchanged for anything.

Those financial “personalities” who make assumptions about everyone else’s dedication to the pursuit of wealth for its own sake might agree, on occasion, with the view that “money isn’t everything”.

However it is absolutely essential to our society and we should all aspire to at least knowing the basics attaching to earning or gaining money, the preservation of it, and when it has not been given in exchange for goods and services, how to make it work for you.
