    money is a trade medium and something many people get trapped in the pursuit of. the greatest experiences in life usually do not cost very much, and once someone is super rich they tend to gloss over those opportunities.

    From a personal viewpoint, I don't have much value in money. I see money as a neccesity. But I don't need more than I need. And I don't need much at all.

    I'm a pretty good saver. I don't spend much money so it just stacks up.

    don't get me wrong, I'd be super happy if I win like a few million or something. Don't think I'm hipocrit. But I won't feel bad if I have enough to buy me food, drink, a place to stay and internet.



    But, from a business point of view. My work. Money is extremely important. I try to think of money like an ingame currency of a strategy sim though. Lulz. Money is creation, in coorperate life.




    When it comes to me personally, earning money or given money. I'd much rather if money would be given to me. Because I hate having to work for a reason that doesn't suit me.

    I much rather work for other incentives. Such as challenge, creation, change. And so on.

    Thinking of working for the rest of my life doesn't give me any happy thoughts. Especially, if I have to do it under someone else. So I would like to built a system where money would come in automatically (the legal way of course). However, it is easier said then done, but having alot of money means I have the option to do whatever I want (doing something that you enjoy is not consider working). So to me, money isn't everything, it just alleviate alot of life's nuisances so having alot is generally a good idea.

    Too bad alot of things I want can't be bought.

    Default It provides a standard of living

    From my perspective, it is highly important as it provides the necessities and can further an individual's standard of living in regards to comfort, health and security.

    In terms of involvement with the business world, I keep a close eye on stock prices, economic news and always have small investments with different debenture firms. I certainly spend on a number of different items but after some comparisons and research has been conducted, in particular for large purchases.

    As much as some people find money is not important, that would be a misconception.
    It won't buy happiness and fond memories but it can certainly provide for your own welfare and that of your family - that's why working hard in a career that matters to you, saving/investing logically and having careful spending habits will minimise stress resulting from life mishaps.

    Placing a high value on money does not imply greed, frugality or moral corruptness - it is a person's careless actions that will.

    I really don't know what to make of it...Maybe it's my age but all I think of money as is a means of

    Paying Student Loans
    Dating Girls
    Bribing the secret police

    Frankly, my ignorance of all things financial scares me, but not so much as to motivate me to learn about it. It seems like a necessary evil.

    I would love it if this were to happen

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    I don't like having to think about money.

    I wish, idealistically, that everybody had access to the things they need for survival plus time to do as they wish for leisure.

    I'll take it.
    Personally, I enjoy making money. Unless I'm volunteering, I expect to be well paid for the work that I do. With money, I can provide for the current and future needs and desires of my family and close friends. Having money reduces my stress levels because of the security and flexibility that it allows. Money tears down barriers and builds up new ones all the same. Philosophically, I take issue with many of the world's monetary systems and distribution processes.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
