Money makes the world go around
It makes the world go ’round
A mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound
Is all that makes the world go around…
These lyrics from the classic show tune “Money, Money”, performed by Liza Minelli and Joel Gray in the 1972 movie “Cabaret”, extol the virtues of money. The actors, donned in well-to-do evening wear, prance around singing and praising the all-mighty dollar. The skit is a comedic look into how the civilized world values money. Money is at the very center of human existence and often times it is money, for better or for worse, that dictates the quality and even the longevity of one’s life.
Prior to the creation of money, bartering was the means by which people exchanged goods and services. The history of money dates back to ancient Lydia; a providence of modern-day Turkey. Lydia’s King Alyattes is noted, by several sources, to have created and disseminated the world’s first gold and silver coins for the establishment of retail shops around 600 B.C.. The first banknote came into being around 1661 A.D. according to Rebecca Burn-Callander’s article “The history of money: from barter to bitcoin”. Then a new way of payment, the credit card, started appearing around the mid-1940s.
Today we primarily rely on money to acquire goods and services. In business, many firms deal with vendors and suppliers for the goods that aid their business goals. Many automobile makers use parts made by other companies to build the cars they sell. For these business models to work well, companies need efficient and secure ways to transfer funds for products and services rendered whether it be a supplier or a customer.
