I think the world would be great without money.
My teacher told that that these sciencists found a tribe in a desert or something and they dont know what greed is. They shared everything. I think this would please God. A lot of people are doing wrong things just to get money.

If we lived in a world without money we'd only establish a new means of exchange.

i say that it is impossible
without money people would have no motivation to work
for most of us we work because their is a reward
with a job we work harder to earn more money

if there was no money
then why do anything if you get nothing out of it

you cant say everything is free if no one is working

for most of us in this society we work to get something
and that something is at most time money

no money = no work = unsuccessful society

it would be a terrible, impoverished place. people don't give money credit for how important it is in the world. with all the jobs in the world, producing all the crazy things you're able to buy, there has to be some constant of exchange so that the person who develops computer chips for children's toys is able to get milk from dairy farmer. i mean, what the hell does a dairy farmer need a computer chip for a kids toy for? without money there would me no constant of exchange, so we'd be stuck with a difficult barter economy, making the computer chip maker's job totally worthless.

what that meansis that we'd have to produce most of our own goods so as that we'll have items to barter in order to get what we want, making cities much less efficient, since there is no way to produce goods in a city without importing raw materials. without money trade would extremely difficult, and life would be overall more complicated, yet less technologically advanced.

since people would have to produce some sort of good in order to trade, the assembly line, the process that makes mass production possible, would become obsolete. 10 unrelated people who helped put a car together can't all use the car to barter for goods. that means that each carmaker's family would be selling their own model of cars, with varying levels of quality, interchangeabilty of parts, standards of safety, etc. not only that, but the amount of time it takes one family to make a car means there would be less cars for trade, making travel much more difficult, and the time it would take to build a car without an assembly line wouldn't be worth what they could barter for it.

and probably most importantly, complicated jobs that require a lot of time and effort but produces no physical, tradeable items (such as scientific research) would become impossible, driving technological advancement into stagnation, with the exception of the odd agricultural development, or raw good harvesting development that are randomly discovered by farmers or harvesters.


most people don't understand how important money is for our society to function. if you give it more thought than "the existence of money means some people have less of it, so we should eliminate it altogether to be equal," you'll see that modern life requires it in order to function.

It would be impossible, because without money people would have nothing to do.

Education would be useless.., why get an education?..

people would be lazy.

well in a logical sense its impossible to live without any sort of currency now days, but then again in the ancient years and im talking about back in the cave man days. How they do such a thing. By trading of course, so if no currency existed then trading would be the second and most senseable option. at least that what i want to think??
