You might notice that I haven't posted much about the current economic crisis, mostly because I don't fully understand the current economic crisis.
Some people don't have money. I get that.
But I don't really get where money came from.*
I hear in the beginning it was based in gold, but not anymore.
Actually, in the beginning, there was probably no gold or money or anything.**
People just gathered and hunted for their own stuff, and then maybe traded stuff for other stuff. What a ridiculous idea.
Someone must have decided that this system of direct trading wasn't good enough.
And that's when money must have come about.
There was no money, and then there WAS money.
So let's just do that again. Problem solved!
I'm not sure how it happened, though. I'm not a historian either.
So, how about people who have lots of money just give some of that money to people who don't have enough money?
Too simple and reasonable or un-American? Okay, how about this instead?
Maybe poor people can put their poorness up for bidding on an online auction, and rich people can purchase it.
Because for the person who thinks they have everything money can buy, poorness is the one thing they definitely DON'T have, and thus should be the thing they want the most.
* Maybe from a pit? I think I heard about that in a movie.
** In the beginning, the first thing there was, was light (as I understand it).
Light from god, money from the devil.
(In the form of an apple, which probably just stood in for gold by way of the barter system. Like I said, it's complicated and I don't fully understand financial dealings. But I do know that I like apples.)
