Is it the root of all evil or does it rock your world? How do you feel about money?

I'm a capitalist at heart, even though I don't make very much money and doing so was never a priority in life. When I hear about something in the world, the first way I see it is in terms of how much it's going to cost everyone involved. People's well-being doesn't really cross my mind.

I actually don't identify myself with the Democratic Party because they really seem to be into the government giving money to poor people. Personally I just don't understand that concept.

It's a socialist ideal, although it isn't defined as socialism. It's there to give everyone a chance to become rich, as that's essentially social capitalism. I don't agree with it either. Everyone has the opportunity to make a lot of money at some point in their life.

Money's alright. Receiving money doesn't make me all happy and ecstatic, but it gets me through life.

Honestly, I don't place any real value on Money, although I know I probably should, I usually just let my money sit there unless there's something that catches my eye and I have my wallet. Which usually leads to many bad decisions when the purchase isn't quite satisfying.

I don't have many uses for it. I would prefer to spend my money on someone else whom I care about, but I don't have a significant other to splurge on. :/

It just complicates things usually too, it can really drive people apart when someone will go so far for a quick buck.

I worry more about my job than the actual money that comes from it, I mean there are financial responsibilities but they're never more urgent to me than what I have to get done at work.

Saving it is usually a good idea, if you can find somewhere to put it which will give you more than one cent for your $100.

So, really, it depends what you do with it. It's why we would have nice things...

I don't think too much about money... other than basic necessities I don't spend my money on too many things, so I'm always pretty financially secure!

Then again, at the moment I'm only spending on myself, so when that changes, my view of money may shift as well!

It depends what you do with the money. Money is amoral.

But I like money but I am not despirate for it. I am thinking about investing in stocks over the summer when I have time.

Money isn't that big of a deal to me. I personally only think a person needs enough to buy food, clothes, a house, car, maybe a little extra to set aside...

People should never have more money then they know what to do with. That can cause problems.

Saving it is usually a good idea, if you can find somewhere to put it which will give you more than one cent for your $100. The US is a pretty bad place to save; in fact, it has a negative savings rate (i.e. deficit spending). Hmeh. They say saving is good, if you can actually manage to do it. A job probably helps, and if you aren't in debt. Most people never tend to make it past that last part, though.


No. Inflation these days usually erodes the real value of the money since interest rates are pathetic. You might see an increase in nominal value, but since real value drops....well sucks then.

Money means nothing to me, yet I must have a interest in obtaining it if I am to survive in this world. I don't like Money to much, for my own reasons of course. But over all I don't think to much about money, would I like to have a lot of it? Sure, but if I have enough I could settle for that. Just as long as I can feed myself and live in a place where there is actual life in it and not crime Im good.

money is the evil in this world, it comsumes us all and pretty much makes life a living hello. without money, we would live in a care free world with no worries. allthough i do think the world would turn chaotic without money (no doubt it would), money is still evil.
