What Is Money?

What is money? Money is a tool we use to allocate resources in a society. Money serves multiple purposes, but from the perspective of government, which is the issuer of money, the purpose is to provide for the needs of government. Money is both a type of currency and a measure of value. There are no “natural” forms of currency (money things), including silver or gold. Any object can serve as a form of money, from rocks and sticks to cigarettes and gum, or from paper bills and coins to electronic records and coupons. What lies beyond the currency is the willingness of others to accept that form of currency.

A Journey Through a Failing System: Special Education

Growing up in a era where able-bodied children were not educated on the circumstances of the disabled, I was made fun of a lot. I was called rude and unforgiving names, and treated as a thing instead of as a person. It made it almost impossible for me to make friends. I can personally say not only does it affect you in your early years, but it also affects you in your later years as well. It has cost me many relationships in my life.
