oh..i guess

i mean, the reason people gave up bartering was that sometimes, we don't need the thing somone else wants to exchange with us.

eh idk,i dont understand..

maybe some people would not need what some people offer. Like if i need salt and you just have sugar to offer in exchange for the paints i'm offering you, i would say no deal. (or maybe i wouldn't, you are such a good friend, but anyway that's not the point.)



BUT if we deal in a neutral medium, ie currency, we'd both be able to get what we want, right?

i understand..

i just think it would be better if money didnt exist and we could exchange things..just i have that thought in my mind-why should we use money to get things?there must be another way but i think ppl learnt to use money...can u imagine if money didnt exist and ppl could give food for example to other ppl who need it -without having to pay?i just think like that..

Okay, okay, amysangels, I've teased you enough. I hear you. I really do. I hate what money has done to my family; the fighting, the greed, the terrible price I am paying for my grandfather's selfishness and my mother's foolishness.



And yet I am really thankful for everything my grandmother left me in her Will. And for the things she gave me during her lifetime. She paid for my university education. Even though I don't practice law any more, it was a good education.



I think that we must NEVER surrender to the idea that money controls us. It can only control us if we allow it to control. Some of us who inherited money from my grandmother live good lives, some became animals because of it.



It is up to us. Only us... cannot blame money. If you hadn't given your aunt's money to that guy, you might be studying graphic arts today.



Much love (no *tsk*) --

umm...

Yeah, sure. Try paying for your mobile phone top-up or your internet subscription or your -- ahem -- gas, water and electricity bill with monopoly money.. I wish!



:D



*hugs and love*



AP

=/

*looks at both*

i think money is paper like monopoly heh

amysangels, I have to agree with FreeFallWall here...



:)



*hugs*

I remember when i used to wonder why people can be controlled by paper or plastic. But now i think its such a stupid thought.. Money is not our pricetag. Its not what we're worth. Its what drives us to be competitive and work for rewards. Its important.

clever wow..ok..

"Financial literacy" refers to being able to understand money as well as you can read... normal words. You can't imagine Stunt Nephew (aged 4+) growing up without being able to read, right?



Well, some people think that financial literacy is just as important...



Stunt Nephew (aged 4+) is being brought up to be financially literate. Once we went to MacDonalds -- he was about four -- and after I bought something for him, he asked me "How come the lady gave you so little money back?"



*shock, horror*



I told him, "SHHHHHHHH!!!!" and hurried out of the MacDonalds. But later, in the car, I did the sums on a piece of paper, and yes... she gave me 70 cents less change.



If you do not have financial literacy, people can take advantage of you. My grandmother was born into wealth, but she never stopped educating herself even though she had to leave school at 17 for an arranged marriage to my grandfather (she was very sad...).



Take care! I love you.



Andrew

*looks at u* financial what..?=/

I hear you... but I also really do hope that you will acquire some "financial literacy". It will always be useful for you, no matter how much or little you are earning.



*laughing*



Andrew

noisy prince doesnt worry bout money..yeah*shake head*

:D

i just dont like money and even finding a job u know something ?i wont think about money ,but if i like the job. and thoughts like ''adopting kids in future'' that someone told me it needs money too -ok i say money is necessary but i do hate money.. and money its just papers!eh ok is crazy to say i hate some papers...........but i prefer having other things as number 1 rather than money



eh ok...........hugs*

i know money also can be good...

P/s: Sorry to sound like such a "Dad", but one of the best things you can do for yourself, for your future, is to acquire a good understanding of economics and of how money works. So that nobody can cheat you. I am so terrible at maths and even at recognizing big numbers, but I was reading corporate annual reports from the age of ten or eleven. And understanding them.



Money is not a mysterious force against we have no control. We have to learn how to understand and take control. I think that iza would agree with me here...



My late father had enough money to choose a low-paying job (= teaching) because he wanted to help people. He never drove a car bigger than 1,600cc. Maybe it's all a matter of balance... like Wolfie says. I've seen people go crazy when they came into money; I've also seen people use their money to express their love and concern for others.



Hmm... ?



*more hugs*

Hello Sweet. This is interesting. I could never say that I hate money. Because I don't have enough of it, and am struggling to take care of my daily needs. My beloved grandmother was very wealthy, but she lived carefully. She had a way of helping people in the way they needed. Had she not been so wealthy, the last years of her life -- when her strength and her health was failing -- would have been incredibly hard for my mother and me. Because we were her primary caregivers. Even though we could afford professional private nurses, there were days when I took leave from work because there was no suitable nurse and somebody had to be with my grandmother.



My late father had more money than he needed, but he lived very simply. I think that money in itself cannot be a problem. It is the way people react to money -- eg. with greed etc -- which can be hateful and ugly. The problem is with *us*.



Your Aunt and Uncle are doing everything they possibly can to share what they have with you, in the only way they know. My brother is now the father of two children, and for the first time in his life there are some things he cannot afford, he has to put their needs in front of his own wants.



Just an opinion... *hugs and SO MUCH love*



:D
