We’re Not Talking the Same Money Language
THE LANGUAGE OF MONEY
I know you have a basic understanding of the language of money as it relates to you. There is the concept of going to work, at the end of the week or month, you get paid for the work you did then you get to spend that money (keeping yourself alive). This isn’t much different than in previous times before money when you exchanged the work you did for something you needed to survive.
As we have moved in a forward position, we created this paper product (or metal coins) called money. Depending on where you live, there are certain values placed on this money. Your money can buy a certain amount of products or pay for services. This is the language of money.
TALKING THE SAME MONEY LANGUAGE
We are all used to the “legal tender” from countries around the World. We have the US Dollar, the Japanese Yen, the British Sterling Pound, the Euro in most of the European countries, the Canadian and Australian Dollar, the Peso from Mexico and the Philippines (2 different currencies), etc. These all have their own values but they are basically the same money language.
I went to the library today to return a book on Money Management. I wanted to get another book but I wanted one on money management with a slightly different aspect to it. You see, most books speak from the familiar money language that we already know and speak well. (not too well, however) I got frustrated and left since I couldn’t find the “language” I was looking for.
A NEW MONEY LANGUAGE
I wasn’t looking for something on the new language of money at the library today. I was looking for those threads of information that even the writer doesn’t know they included. I found a great title that I thought might have that shred of evidence but I couldn’t find the book. Sometimes you just happen in the right direction and today was not going to be that day. (at least at the library)
While I was driving home, I started wondering just what it was that I was looking for. Then it hit me! As we are moving into this new are of our new economy, we are slowly adjusting our way of thinking about money. How it’s spent, how it’s earned, how it’s produced, there is a lot of new information surrounding the aspects of money.
The New Money Language is based in Virtual Currencies. With this new way of thinking, buying and selling, comes a whole need of education. We need to better understand how money works.
What started today for me as a search for better ideas on money management, became a search for a new education system for a New Language of Money.
