Why do we pay money for things?
Did you ever ask yourself that question? Why do we have to have money? Why do we have to put so much emphasis on money and why do we care?
Most of those questions you can answer for yourself, but I want to give you a different view on this whole thing, lets address this question.
Why pay money for things?
Because somebody, at some point in time wanted something that somebody else had. They had a cow and wanted some chickens; they traded one for the other and they got what they wanted. At some point somebody realized that they didn't always have a cow to trade with and wanted more. They developed a way of making nifty looking coins that someone said was worth something, then they invented the almighty dollar. Now I don't know about you, but a green piece of paper that has $100 on it, doesn't seem right to exchange for a DVD player or game system. How can that piece of paper be of the same value? Because somebody said so, that's how.
So now that I answered my version of this question, is your answer the same as it was before I addressed it?
The bottom line here is that we have to have money because somebody at some point wanted something and didn't have anything to exchange for it. Emphasis is placed so heavily on it because we need it for almost everything that we do. Since we don't have a farm anymore to make our own food, or cows grazing in the pasture, we're limited in our means and have to rely on the almighty buck to get us by.
Now that I put this into a different perspective for you, maybe you can realize the real value of money, which is just a means to exchange for something you want and not a big stupid problem that absorbs your life.
