Money seems to have a big role in our society; there will not be much to do or we will not get far if we don’t have any. Although we cannot see money physically, it’s valuable in different ways. In today’s society we must have faith in the government and in the banking system that our money will be handled properly; if not, then we would have to hide all of our money under our own mattresses or around our house. People have no clue what happens in the banks, or how they take care of their money. I always thought money was simple; you either have some or you don’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. We don’t actually see our money being transferred. For instance, when someone gets paid, they aren’t handed cash or receive a physical check, in fact, the money’s all directly transferred into one’s bank account, and we just have to trust that we will receive more money.
