Money seems to have a big role in today’s society; without money it is hard to do much or get far in life. Money is valuable in different ways, even if it is not presented physically. In today’s society there must be faith in the government and in the banking system that money is being handled in the proper manner; if not, then money would have to be hidden under a mattress or around the house. What happens in the bank is a mystery, and what they do with all the money they receive is a mystery. Most people presume either you have money or you don’t, and 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 doesn’t have to be seen, to be considered real. On pay day, money usually just gets transferred to bank accounts, no one receives an actual check anymore, there just has to be trust in the bank that more money was deposited.
