    Money

    Sorry if someone already made this topic.

    What would the world be like without
    money? Would people be more selfish? Would people take everything they see or would they be more helpful and sharing? Or would there not be much difference at all?

    Re: Money

    Before the concept of money was made, people stuck to trading.
    I believe it would be the same today without money.

    Re: Money

    Money is just a medium of exchange, it makes easier the trade. So without money, as said above we'd still be trading, we just wouldn't have a clear idea of the value of a certain object.

    No debate here, I'm locking this. Of course if anyone else disagrees, you may unlock it.

    Meh, I think I'm going to unlock it. There's still somewhat of a debate and I've wondered the same thing.

    Everyone has a job that they are paid for, but would they be as motivated to work in a world where everything is free? Or would they be satisfied because others also work for no money? Maybe they wouldn't know what it's like to work for no money, and therefore it's normal? Interesting thoughts in my opinion, what would happen to the world?

    Communism fails because it relies on the 'good will' of human beings.

    No it fails because there HAS to be someone of higher power. Who makes the decisions?

    The idea of communism is that everyone is equal.

    Yeah, work would really be volunteering. However, people might look up to you since you're doing work because you want to. So instead of getting money, maybe you're getting paid by getting recognition?

    Money is just a simplified way of trading. If we didn't have an established currency, we would be using the barter system.

    Re: Money

    Back in the day people traded. You worked at your black smithing place or anything else to make an item and trade it for something you needed more. Wood for a fire, food, ect. Other people like bakers made food. Lumberers cut lumber. Work was not vulontary(i cant spell :C) but a team effort to stay alive.
