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 isn’t there physically. In today’s society faith must be had in the government and in the banking system that money is being handled in the proper manner; if not, then it would have to all be hidden under our mattresses or around our houses. I have no clue what happens in the banks, or how they take care of deposits. I always thought money was simple; we either have it 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. We don’t have to see our money being transferred to receive payment. When employees are handed a pay stub, they aren’t handed cash or a check, the money’s all directly transferred to their bank account, and they have to trust that they received more money.
