Money seems to have a big role in our society; it can’t do much or get far if one doesn’t have any. Money is valuable in different ways, even when it isn’t seen physically. In today’s society, must having faith in the government and in the banking system that our money is being handled in the proper manner is vital; if not, then the only options left are to hide all money under a mattress or around one’s house. I have no clue what happens in the banks, or how they take care of your money. I always thought money was simple; it was either owned, or it wasn’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. Money is not always actually see your money being transferred. During payment, cash is not actually handed out to the person, most of the time people don’t receive a physical check, the money’s all directly transferred to a bank account, and us working-class citizens just have to trust that you got more money.
