All About Money: The History, Culture, and Meaning of Modern Finance

by Rae Simons

Money symbolizes everything that people value. Paper bills were originally I.O.U. notes to other people, and these banknotes became official when people realized paper was a lot easier to carry around than a bunch of coins! Paper bills represent the money a government has. If more bills are printed than there is actual money, inflation occurs. The economy is the distribution of goods and services within a country. There are many systems that countries can use to run their economies, including capitalism, communism, and socialism. The United States is a capitalist country.
