In some form or another we all need money, and use it whether we want to or not. We may not want to accept that we’re bound to it, but given that we live in a human society we must admit and accept that we are bound to it. There are many ways to define money; we can speculate and deal in hard currency or cash, in credit and debit cards, in valuing things such as land, minerals, and in predictions and hopes for future funds. We can even exchange theoretical money for theoretical money with a name: bit coin. All of this is in aid of making an exchange of goods or services between people willing to make the exchange. This can also be accomplished using barter; this encourages local and, some think, a much more fair and equitable economy. A problem that can arise with these methods of commerce is that people tend to apply these principles to everything in their lives, not only to items that can be acquired in no other way. Most inappropriately, people tend to put a commercial value on emotions, feelings, and their relationships between one another. For emotions, feelings, instincts, loves, cannot be bought or sold, can they?
