Anyone who thinks getting rid of money is even remotely possible in today’s society is crazy. End of story.
Are you saying you'd like to get rid of money itself (the 'worthless' pieces of paper), or that you'd get rid of the idea that at any one point in
time a person can have made a surplus (or deficit) in their trading history.
What I mean here is are you saying I cannot trade a product or service for something, worthless in itself, which in the future guarantees me the value
of that p or s when I need it. (All that money is really)
Cash is the key to trading fluidy; it is just like any other form of credit. It allows me to harvest a ton of maize and then trade that for my next
year’s worth of other essentials, when I need them. Would it be easier to take a sack full of maize to the supermarket every week? (Far fetched but
you get my point).
If you suggest that the gov should control and ration everything and think that human greed would just disappear, then good luck with it, but I think
its been tried.. The world is swung far enough out of equilibrium as it is.
Feel free to rip my opinion to pieces, that’s what its there for.
