Money seems to have a big role in our society; we can’t do much or get far if we don’t have any of it. Money is valuable in different ways, even when it’s not visible. In today’s society a person must have faith in the government, the banking system and that money is being handled with in the proper manner. Without this faith people would be hiding all of their money under the mattresses , or around the house. I never really have a clue what happens in my bank, and how they take care of my money. I always used to think that money was a quite simple thing; we either have some or we don’t, that’s it. However, by being introduced to this assignment and having to compare the Yap Fei, the US and France gold trade in 1933, and the Brazilian cruzeros it all seems somewhat similar to me. No one actually sees their money being transferred. When we get paid, we don’t usually get a check or cash, it’s all directly transferred to the bank account and we just have to trust the employer on sending our money.
