[quote:Anonymous Coward 891821:MV85ODA3ODlfMTU1NDQ2MzFfOTYwRUFGMjM=] Money is a means to exchange value for goods or services in a convenient way. If all money were abolished, a new money would soon be created. It can't be correctly said that money is a result of some deviancy of modern man, because money has been around for 3200 years. http://library.thinkquest.org/28718/history.html The first people didn't buy goods from other people with money. They used barter. Barter is the exchange of personal possessions of value for other goods that you want. This kind of exchange started at the beginning of humankind and is still used today. From 9,000-6,000 B.C., livestock was often used as a unit of exchange. Later, as agriculture developed, people used crops for barter. For example, I could ask another farmer to trade a pound of apples for a pound of bananas. Shells At about 1200 B.C. in China, cowry shells became the first medium of exchange, or money. The cowry has served as money throughout history even to the middle of this century :end snip: Livestock was often used as a unit of exchange. Cumbersome. Our banking system is corrupt, but that is not a result of using money. [/quote]
