In the olden days when the barter system existed, people were very happy. Everyone did what they liked. They worked in the places of their choice and the level of satisfaction among them was at its peak. There were no analysts to predict the economic future of the economy. In fact there was no economy.
The invention of currencies led to a complete chaos and discrimination among people in terms of region and living standards. It so happened that a few jobs were very money yielding while some were not. Some products like gold fetched the maker a lot of money while cotton did not. This led to a lot frustration and hatred among people. This also led to the birth of the so called ‘competitive world’. As years passed by this situation got even worse.
Today money is everything, if you don’t have it you are termed as a looser. The amount of money you earn shows how successful you are. Where you work and what you do has no importance whatsoever. Inevitably the crime rate is at its all time high. Filing law suits against family members, killing them if they protest, getting into malpractices at work places and all the other kinds of similar stuff going around you is in someway derivable from money. It is like an evaluation system designed to rank everything in the world.
Therefore the fact of the matter is, people spend their entire life trying to earn as much money as possible. They don’t care if the work they do is not of their liking. Their aim is to earn money as fast as possible. On the other hand when it is time to retire, they try to run away from the money they earned cuz they are the just sick of measuring all the world’s pleasures and happiness in money. Well thats the power of money…… 🙂 🙂
