What Is Money and Where Does It Come From?

Most investing, entrepreneurship, financial management and all the skills that are discussed in the "business" section seem to be focussed on "how to get more money". Since money seems to be so important, I want to ask a simple question:

What is money and where does it come from?

It seems to be such a simple question, but a discussion of the answer would open our eyes to so many things that are happening in the world of business today.

What is money? This is any financial instrument that can be easily converted to obtain something of value.

Where does it come from? When and wherever you provide value you command the ability to receive money (provided you know it is valueable).

Money is a tool or mechanism to satisfy your desires.

Money is a powerful tool to acquire anything and everything.

It is Good, it makes life sweet and solvves lots of Problems.

Money is a dynamic weapon to destroy and rebuild.

Economically, too much money in an econmoy causes inflation.

In nigeria today , whether it is hyperinflation, gallop inflation, spiral inflation, deflation or whatever there is no equitable distrubution of money .

Biblically, it was said money is the root of all eveils.Also said, money answereth all calls.

Money is good, and every man must strive to have a fair share of its chunk.

Money the sweet aroma.

Money is one of the most beautiful of man's creation.It oils the wheel of development and progress.The less money you have in a country,the more that country disintegrates.

the replies have seen so far is interesting and it has shown me why many peps are still poor.

however, the simple definition of money is that ,it's a PRINCIPLE that must be studied and understood so that you can use it for the purpose in which it is created. ALL is good. nothing is bad in reality but in apperance can be.

money is an energy, it has vibration.learn the language of money and it comes to you in momentum(small, small= big).

you dont rush to get it as it's a journey(path) not the destination. meaning it's the Universal Spirit of ALL that gives you the ability to get wealth.

get my book on " the secret,science and ability to get wealth". at books.lulu.com/content/573862. it's an e-book you can download. or contact at:

Money is paper that comes from trees and is processed or some rocks that come from stones inside the ground and are processed too.

Money is a medium of exchange, and money comes from the circle of exchange. The exchange mentioned here includes the buying and selling of comodities and services. Comodities here can be anything physical that does not belong to you, and you have to use the exchange to change the ownership whilst services might either be services to your work place or services to your clients. Whatever it might be, as long as there is the medium , and the exchange takes place, that is the circle.
