What Is The Fascination With Money?

Money makes the world go round, or so they say. There are so many people out there that will do all sorts of things in the name of money but why? Everything costs money, everybody works for money, people kill for money, people steal for money and it is this manmade product that makes our incredible planet function.

We live in the internet age and it didn’t take long for money to infiltrate the internet either. There are so many internet only companies nowadays and they have come about because there is potential to make the infamous “money”. I find it incredible that for however this world exists, people will be driven and motivated by money.

There is in my opinion no way out of this system and it just has to be embraced, this article will aim to highlight the where the great fascination with money stems from and where the future of money lies.

Personal Enrichment

This is perhaps the traditionally deemed most important “thing” about money. The personal enrichment that comes with having money is far greater than those who don’t have it. That’s just a simple fact of life in my opinion, having a lot of money can give you the opportunities only money can allow such as travel and those material benefits too.

I appreciate money isn’t the be all and end all in life but in terms of the things you can do during your life, having money can really help you. Moreover, those who have money can invest their money and thus generate more money. There are a lot of companies out there that also help with this such as ACPI investments for example.

Those people with wealth are looked after by these sorts of companies and they in turn try to protect and generate more wealth, it’s a cyclical thing.

Support Family

Having money can really help you support your family. This is in some people’s opinion the true meaning of life and being able to do this to a certain degree relies on the amount of money you have available.

Naturally providing can be in the form of advice and other things like that but having that monetary ability to ensure your children don’t go without must not be underestimated.

Makes the World Go Round

Money does make the world go round, this is one of the very sad facts of life but people genuinely are in love with those little bits of paper. So many companies and corporations exist for one reason only and that is money. People are selfish and ruthless when it comes to money but there are also a lot of benefits, it really is a case of give and take.

It is important that you keep a balanced mind when it comes to money, there are a lot of people out there who value money as a means of survival and others as a source of fun and enjoyment before anything else.

Money is ambiguous but what’s for certain is that we all need it.
