Money seems to have a big role in our society; we can’t do much without it. Money is valuable in different ways, even when it is not physically present. In today’s society there must be faith in the government and the banking system. We have to trust that our money is being handled in the proper manner and not being stolen. I always thought money was simple; we either have some or we 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. An individual doesn’t actually see their money being transferred. When they get paid, they, typically, aren’t handed cash. They either receive a pay check or the money is directly transferred into their bank account. One just has to trust that they paid.
