Money. You need it; we need it; everyone needs it. Did you know some of our founding fathers had money troubles and had to resort to less-than-legal methods to make ends meet? It’s true. In this episode of Flash Past, Dan and Lyle discuss money and how we access it.
Coins have been a form of currency for thousands of years, but then, so have chickens, goats, and gold. Over the years, we have certainly used different forms of payment, but until recently, we have generally kept money on our person. Now, however, most of us seem to opt for the debit or credit card and carry little to no cash–in America, that is.
Many of us were raised on the philosophy that if you can’t afford to buy it outright, you don’t need it. Well, in our dual-income society, that has changed. More income means more inflation. In turn, we have to have more and more money to get through the year.
