I am a freshman in high school, and even before my classes started I was learning. On my first day I learned some very important things before lunch even happened! 1) Friends change all the time, 2) Geometry is going to be a VERY hard class, and 3) if I thought the school supplies lists were bad before, I had a rude awakening! In one of my classes, I learned that I would have to get A LOT of extra supplies, and there was going to be more added to the two page list!! My first thought was that there was NO WAY I would be able to get all of this stuff. As it turned out, I didn't have to. But then I got to thinking about what my parents would have done if they couldn't have afforded the supplies we could get. And that got me thinking about money and how it truely does make things work out. After a little q and a and some research, on my behalf, I learned more about where all the money goes that people make at their jobs. I think learning about money and banks was the most confusing part of all! I mean why do banks basically pay you to borrow money to give to other people?? I mean, why the middle man? Wouldn't it just make more sense if people all just loaned money to other people? But then I got to thinking about how governments play their role in the banking system. Well, lets just say that I got even more confused before it all made sense... as it turns out, banking and the economy go hand in hand ,and without the banking systems, the economy would go down the tubes. So the money in banks keeps everything running smoothly; and sense different countries' economies are also connected, it keeps the wolrdwide economy from becoming a complete reck. So in a long twisted jumble of facts, money really does make the world go round and round.
