Money seems to have a big role in our society; we as a society can’t do much or get far if money is not present. Money is valuable in different ways, even when we don’t see it physically. In today’s society we must have faith in the government and in the banking system that our money is being handled in the proper manner; if not, then they 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 our money. I always thought money was simple; we either have some or you 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. Someone doesn’t actually see the money being transferred. When someone get paid, they aren’t handed cash, they didn’t receive a physical check, the money’s all directly transferred to someone’s bank account, and they just have to trust that they got more money.
