u cant define smthg by smthg else, it is against defintiion

de fine is to make it lighter less, not to put more weight on

used by human being..hooo wat does it mean a tool used and by and how from objects we get now to subjects that are meaning smthg else, all mean that??? exchange fo goods and services??? why would humans need money for that???

u r using a picture of money use to define money, a reality is related to all means not to things identities

Why you insist on advertising it in your signature I have no Idea. Anyway lets not dirty any more threads with our insults to one another. If you wanna slanging match make a specific thread.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

I used to just forgive when a total dickface like earmuff threw an insult but the folks of this forum found that offensive. I actually think they like it when you stoop to their level.

zero is a concept that is how it is always subjective, but zero of course cant b real

i know that for sure, when we mean nothing we have to improvise an act, staying without mean dont work especially in truth

I'd like to go on record and say that the issue is not that I read your posts with negativity. The issue is I read your posts and think "da fuq?" because I have no idea what you're trying to say.

Ok, carry on people.

... oh, as for the topic: money is what others have called it - it is an agreed upon exchange. It is a necessary fiction required for any economy larger than a small town with a barter system to survive. It is based on the mutual agreement that we will all honor it as money. The value of money is determined by the market. I&I asked earlier "what is the 'market'?". The "market" is the general community where goods are exchanged. The value of good is set by the market. That's why a can of soda costs roughly $1 and a BMW costs $30,000. Because that is how people value it.

Paper money works against the market value of an item. It is really an exchange of goods for goods when you think about it. We just substitute traditionally good for these ious of value that we all agree represent something of value. It's a bit of an illusion but it's one we all agree upon. When you think about it, the advent of currency is one of man's most amazing inventions, up there fire, the wheel and internet porn. Without it civilization could never have really kicked off. We could never have moved past small communities who survived in a barter economy. The idea that we all agreed to pretend a coin or a piece of paper with no real inhernet value was worth the amount written on it is an amazing human accomplishment.

This is actually an interesting topic. I'm just waiting for the typical I&I "gotcha" moment that makes everyone regret they ever got invovled with it.

By replying in his thread, I&I's already gotcha. I sprayed myself with disinfectant. I should be safe.

RE: Is Money Real?
If money represents something, what does it represent and how is the monetary value of this thing represented determined?

"the market" is an abstract idea that has yet to be fully explained on this thread.

Feel free to get off your fat ass, and make a stab at it. It would be a first...you actually defining something, instead of lurking in the bushes, waiting to attack anyone who is stupid enough to take your bait.

Asked and answered. Re-read the thread.

How does this work with money?

It doesn't.

Money is explicitly a human social construct (cf every on-topic reply in the thread).

If you're going somewhere with this, go there much faster. You'll waste fewer peoples' time.
