Text. Glimpses of history of money

At different periods of time and in different parts of the world many different commodities have served as money.

These commodities were: cattle, sheep, furs, leather, fish, tobacco, tea, salt, shells etc. The illustration shows shell money used by early settlers in North America. The shells were threaded into strings or belts called wampum. The experts underline that to serve effectively as money; a commodity should be fairly durable, easily divisible, and portable. Nome of the above-mentioned commodities possessed all these qualities, and in time they were superseded by precious metals.

First they were superseded by silver and later by gold.

When a payment was made the metal was first weighed out. The next stage was the cutting of the metal into pieces of definite weight and so coins came into use.

Paper money first came into use in the form of receipts given by goldsmiths in exchange for deposits of silver and gold coins. After goldsmith became bankers their receipts became banknotes. That’s how the first banknotes came into existence.

At first coins were worth their face value as metal. But later token coins of limited value as legal tender were issued. Now smaller denomination coins are made from bronze and are often referred to as coppers. Bigger denomination coins are made from cupronickel and are usually called silvers or silver.

VII. Беседа: «Does money rule the word? », «Where to get money? »

Teacher: People sometimes think that money rules the world.

Is it really so important to be rich and have a lot of money?

Where to get money, how do spend it? You how do you feel when you have no money?

Student 1: Money…

I fully depend on my parents.

They pay for my studies and they are the only source. I can get money from. I spend a great sum of money on eating out, discos and little presents for my present.

Student 2: I need money for these things:

clubs, clothes, CD-s, cinema, walking out with friends. Money doesn’t play sick a big role in my life. I feel happy that my life is not totally centered around the money. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. And just readily a good book from the library. Money isn’t everything got me, but I steel need it to live as I want

Student 3: People sometimes think that money riles the world. But I can’t say

that I agree with it. Surely, people need money to live, to get educated to have rest. But I don’t think that they should fully depend on money.

Teacher: Thank you for your answer. The answers to this questions are very

different. One more problem is where to get money. Some people work hard to earn it, others simply take it from others, still others sell something to get it.
