On Goods and Wealth: About Money

By Bernard

Value is fundamental.  Then, the economy deals with money!

But money, we have seen it, means nothing.  What could you do in a hot desert with one million of paper money?  Even with one million of gold, or silver, or diamonds, or anything else than water... and food?

So, money is important if it means to have some good or service.  People with a lot of goods are said to be rich and wealthy.   Most of the people want to have a lot of goods and services for their lifestyle.  New rich people like to show their new wealth driving the newest expensive car and living in the most expensive house in town.  What about the movie stars, sports stars...
