    Anyone here know of any good site that teaches MONEY? Like who created it, where it comes from and how it runs the world.

    Conspiracy or non-conspiracy is welcome! Give it to me!! Link Link, where are you.

    Now that you are a STUDENT... ;)... How about start a research project on money, how it came into existance and the power of it. Just leave out the conspiracy and you have the making of a really awesome Research Project.

    I've never done any serious research... so don't expect anything.

    The Research Projects section needs a "How to do proper research" thread. I'm currently collecting links for it. Hoping it will make people interest in doing any kind of research in the future.

    tablet , If you and I were on a desert island and you traded me your last loaf of bread for my last $ 100 dollar bill ..... You would starve , I would eat , and when you died of starvation before me YOU would become dinner for oddtodd ....And then I would take my money back .....

    My point here is that money is imaginary ... you cannot eat it , you cannot eat gold ,silver , or any other precious metals or minerals. It has an imaginary value placed on it that can only be exchanged with someone who has established an imaginary value of their own .

    We all need the same things in life ... food , shelter , and a lifetime subscription to Popular Science ....:lol:

    Maybe you should research WHEN mankind adopted a monitary system of value that DID NOT have a "human need" attached to it ... For example : this little clay chip I am giving you is not only a promise to pay yo the price of a goat , but to actually GIVE you a real live goat !!!

    Strange that we all need that paper stuff to trade with .....

    The word "carat" that defines the weight of a precious stone comes from an ancient word for grain , an interesting fact seeing that only one of them can be eaten...
