It is widely believed that money has been in use for around 3000 years. Before this, our ancestors used to trade useful items such as grain and cattle under what was known as the barter economy. Then people started to trade using attractive items such as shells, beads and eventually precious metals. This then evolved into coinage and, eventually, the concept of money as we now know it. And in 3000 years, money has become a conglomerate of elaborate, and often entwining systems including banking, the stock market, financial services and insurance and accounting.
Money is arguably the most important of life’s essentials. True, we need food and water to stay alive and you can’t eat money. But, we do need money to buy them. So naturally we try to make and preserve as much money as possible by making shrewd investments, purchasing insurance to help protect our assets and clever banking. Of course, due to its importance, money, and all things related, generally tends to be a bit complicated, and sometimes intimidating. But fear not, we’re to at least make it cheaper.
