Money, what is it good for? I’ll answer that question later, but right now money is a commodity that is needed around the world. In many countries money comes in many different denominations sizes and shapes. The need for money makes every human being in the world if they are old enough to earn money get out of bed seeking money.
Money and the quest for money makes many people do things that most will consider down outright disgusting. People will beg, borrow, steal and kill for the search or just trying to get their hands on money.
If you go into any building or arena full of people and you yell or just mention money people will pay attention. People will want to know where the money is and they would want to know how they can get their hands on that money.
You hear many people say that they will compromise their morals for money. They’ll say I do not love money that much to risk death or freedom for the search or quest for money. Money is one of those commodities that you can’t live with it and you can’t live without it.
Why is this statement so true, is because you cannot live with the money because you need the money to purchase goods or services. So you cannot live with it. On the other hand you can’t live without because of the same reasons you need it to purchase goods or services. So like an oxymoron doesn’t.
You need money in this world for everything, such as paying for your food, mortgage, rent, buying cars, jewelry, clothes and even water which was kind of free in the past. Now we pay for water as well.
There is only one thing that we do not need money for and it is one of the most important things in life we all need. The only thing money cannot pay for is the air you breath, that is the only free thing you will ever receive for free as a figure of speech. Everything else you are going to need money to pay for that service or product.
No one really knows who created money, but it was created many many moons ago. In the long ago past they used the barter system, trading for goods or services from each other so there was no need for money. So some smart aleck had to invent the money and then the quest and search for money has become a never ending endeavor for everyone born into this world.
Would the world be better off if money was never invented? If money was never invented we probably would be using the barter system and life could be more interesting right? Life for sure as we know it would be slower, but we probably would be using more resources, because everyone would have to learn so type of trade so they can barter for some goods or services.
So the question I asked at the beginning of this article; Money, what is it good for? Money is good for absolutely everything in this world we all live in today, because without money you will turn into absolutely nothing really quick fast and in a hurry and possibly perish as well.
