Learning To Value Money And Its Role In Our Lives
Today money has its own importance and its own value. Just as we need air to breathe, food to eat, water to drink, money also has become an essential part of our existence. Money is necessary to buy the everyday necessities of life right from what we eat to how we get to work to how we need a home to get back to. Without money in your hand how will you buy that bread and butter that you need to sustain yourself? Unless a person has a benefactor who provides everything to him for free, every person needs some amount of money to live a basic life.
Unfortunately, things are so skewed in favor of the concept of whoever makes more wins, that life itself has become a competition with people outbidding each other in the quest to make more and more money.
In today’s world, financially if you compare a celebrity net worth to an ordinary man’snet worth, you will notice that there is a very huge disparity.
With more money comes more responsibilities but reading newspapers and watching TV news shows you that all rich people really don’t act so responsible. There may be a few exceptions but what one earns one wants to keep entirely for himself and his family even though he can share a large amount with the less fortunate. As a result, economic inequality has increased to a great extent that now the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
If governments can introduce better methods of money regulation, then maybe people of the lower income groups would also stand a chance at being able to make more money.We can do our bit by teaching our children the value and importance of money from a tender age so that they soon learn not to equate a person’s humanity with his money making power.
