Same with diamonds and gold and jewels and all that stuff. They're just rocks, but we give them value.

Well, some stones are actually rare, and since there arent that many they are rare and therefore valuable. Money is not rare, it is easy to print.y

diamonds are the strongest cutting tool and other rocks and minerals actually can be used for different reasons another reason they are valuable.

Actually diamonds aren't that valuable. This company has a total monopoly on them so they can charge whatever they want. I forget the company name though

think about this then if money has no real value then how did we end up in debt? and who are in debt to? mostly ourselves so we could boost the value of the dollar and pull our selfs out but then money would lose its value....but if its worth nothing in the first place how can it lose what it never had....therefore once again making our government (or my highself) look retarded

well i wish we actually had to possess things of value
but then it would be much easier to steal.

but money is necessary, like it or not

It is necessary, but not necessarily in cotton dollar form. If you are too much of a pussy to guard your own sack of gold, then you just don't deserve your own sack of gold.

Money was made to be a universal medium of exchange for the entire country. Every area had different money back in the day so they conformed everything to one system.

Fri, 07/22/2011 - 5:18pm

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but money actually has its value because of gold and silver bars held at different building around the U.S.(fort Knox and Bullion Depository)

 
 
Fri, 07/22/2011 - 8:21pm

Ya but there is only so much of it that we actually hav, we keep printing more and more paper money that is why its value goes down sorry to be the bearer of bad news the more of somethin the less value it holds.

It's like diamonds. They only hold value because they're shiny and relatively hard to find.

Only like a third of money is actually in physical form.

 
 
Fri, 07/22/2011 - 6:54pm

So crazy, me and my friend we're just descussing this the other day, i swear we talked about it for over an hour.. it just makes no sense. money is crazy.
