Money seems to have a big role in our society; we can’t do much or get far if we don’t have any. Money is valuable in different ways, even when it isn’t seen physically. In today’s society we must have faith in the government and in the banking system that our money is being handled with in the proper manner, if not then we would have to hide all of our money under our mattress’ or around our houses. It’s hard to tell what goes on in banks, or what happens to the money inside of them. I always thought money was simple; it’s either there or it isn’t—that’s it. However, being introduced to this assignment, the Yap Fei, US gold, French francs, Brazilian cruzeros, and debit accounts now seem similar. No one actually sees their money being transferred. Money is more elusive now, there’s no more cash in hand or paychecks, money is directly transferred into bank accounts and we just believe it exists.
