Money seems to have a big role in our society; we can’t do much or get far if we don’t have any. Money is valuable in different ways, even when it is not in physical form. Today’s society must have faith in the government and in the banking system that our money is being handled in the proper manner; if not, money would need to be hidden physically. I have no clue what happens in the banks, or how the money is taken care of. I always thought money was simple; someone has it, or does not. However, being introduced to this assignment, the Yap Fei, US gold, French francs, Brazilian cruzeros, and debit accounts now seem similar. The transfer of money is not physically, so it is cannot be seen. When someone is paid, they aren’t handed cash, and don’t receive a physical check, the money’s all directly transferred to their bank account, and trust is needed that the money was transferred properly.
