is money powerful or powerless?the question may look strange but i think there are answers
need your views,
not insulting views.
A poor man can have more power than a rich man but vice versa. There is no definite answer on this one.
What is power?
Depends on ones view on life.
Money replaced barter. Like gold it is as powerful as common consensus dictates. If we were all to agree that it was worthless then that is what it would be. diamonds are different in that they have a value outside common consensus. They are hard therefore have industrial applications beyond whether women wish to wear rings and necklaces with diamonds or not.
Money only has value when people have the perception that it is a valid medium of exchange.
The real power in controlling what people believe.
It might be powerful with respect to the others, but when it comes to yourself, you know it's only an illusion.
Money is only as good as what it will get you. If what you want can't be bought-the money is worthless. Holly
If anybody thinks money is powerless, just try living without it. Every culture throughout history (bar the most primitive) has had some kind of medium of exchange. If you took money out of the equation you'd have to go back to a society where people don't travel, grow nearly all their own food (and barter the rest) and generally subsist on as little as possible.
As big an advocate as I am of living frugally, I wouldn't fancy this type of lifestyle much.
money gets everything you want buty not everything you need
