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