THE VALUE OF MONEY
(Edited By Anne Terri)
In these days of economic turmoil, I often, ask myself, "what is money?"
A long time ago I went to see my first film and I paid the entry fee with an egg- it was not the full price, but as I was a small kid, aged seven, they let me in.
The second movie was organized a couple of months later, in the school classroom, on a Sunday evening. This time, the egg was not enough to get in - the egg had become worth less, because of the chickens producing too many eggs. (Inflation) Then, I saw people showing a piece of paper (ticket), so I thought I needed a piece of paper to get in. I saw a piece a of carton lying on the ground and I took it, and went to try to get into the room where the movie would be shown.
They shouted at me! "Where are you going? You must have a ticket." (there were many of them shouting)
"I have a ticket." I answered, as I showed them my piece of paper. I didn't understand why all of them started laughing. They didn't let me in, and I went way, red-faced. Many years passed before I went to see the next movie.
We have the Euro now, here in Europe, and all the other money is history. The French 'Franc'. The Italian 'Lire'. The Dutch 'Gulden'. The German 'Mark'. The Belgian 'Franc'. The Spanish "Pasetas'. The Portuguese 'Escudos'.
They are all gone. Collectors items. People robbed and killed for them, and they are now past and gone forever.
The sad looking faces of Kings and of Queens on the front of the banknotes, are now gone or have been moved to the newer looking Euro.
The eggs stay, but they are not money any more - they taste good though, but you cannot keep them in a safe.
The coins are also disappearing, and the plastic credit cards are taking the place of the physical money also.
The French call the money 'Argent'; that means silver. The Dutch say 'Geld', and that means a kind of tax. (what is new?) In Italian 'Soldi' (Latin Soldus). That was the money paid to the Roman soldiers .
All the countries have different names for money, but it is all the same poop, even if doesn't smell.
