Money seems to have a big role in our society; we can’t do much or get far if none is present. Money is valuable in different ways, even when it can’t be seen physically. In today’s society we must have faith in the government and in the banking system that is responsible for handling the money in a proper manner; if not, then people would have to hide all their money under mattresses or around the house. I have no clue what happens in the banks, or how they take care of the 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. The transfer of one’s money can’t actually be seen. When getting paid, cash isn’t handed out, and a physical check is not received, the money’s all directly transferred to a bank account, and one just has to trust that they have been paid.
