The Sun – Barter trade can work

My little piece on the concept of money and how expensive things are in Malaysia. Hmm… Barter was just a possibility, but never mind:

I began thinking about money. We need money to survive, right? To buy food, to obtain an education for ourselves and our children, to put a roof over our heads. Money and the lack thereof has driven people to kill others, to kill themselves and their family, it has driven people to drink, to depression, the list is endless.

But money was and still remains a concept. It is a concept at this moment that we accept, and by our acceptance, it has become concrete. Before the concept of money came about, how did humans live? How did we find food or go about our daily matters?

What do you think about money? Are there other concepts of survival that might work?
