I'm really concerned..
My mother lost her job and I'm afraid she won't be able to get another for quite a while, hopefully she does though.
I also care because it affects my future, I'm really scared I won't be able to get a job after I graduate high school, probably even during.

I disagree with the whole idea of money.
I think that people should have stuck with trading items that was fair to both party's.

Yes I am worried about it and it will affect me but I see ways around it but ideas are to "Out there"
Like scrapping money all together and spreading things out between the people.
Example: you have these people who are just filthy rich but then there are people who have nothing and are starving to death.

Money was, is and always will be a bad idea.

I sort of partially agree with you. I would have loved it if society had stopped progressing back in the Iron Age personally. After all they do say "money is the root of all evil". I just don't see that it's actually a viable option now it would be impossible to re-establish the whole of the world on a non-currency basis now, so I disagree that we should do it now but agree it would have been better to stay that way originally. biggrin
