Enough About You–Splash305

Money seems to have a big role in our society; you can’t do much or get far if you don’t have any. Money is valuable in different ways, even when you don’t see it physically. In today’s society you must have faith in the government and in the banking system that your money is being handled in the proper manner; if not, then you would have to hide all of your money under your mattress or around your house. I have no clue what happens in the banks, or how they take care of your 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. You don’t actually see your money being transferred. When you get paid, you aren’t handed cash, you don’t receive a physical check, the money’s all directly transferred to your bank account, and you just have to trust that you got more money.

Money seems to have a big role in our society; people can’t really do much or get far if there isn’t any in their pockets. Money is valuable in different ways, even if it isn’t seen physically. In todays society, having faith in the government and in the banking system that holds all of the money and hoping it is being handled properly; if not we’d all be hiding money under mattresses and around the house. I have no clue what happens in banks, or how they take care of money. I always thought money was simple; it’s either owned by someone 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. We don’t actually see money being transfered. When we get paid, we aren’t handed cash, we don’t receive a physical check, the money’s all directly transferred to peoples bank accounts, and there just has to be a trust that we got more money.
