What do you think would happen if money wasn't made? And only sharing and exchanging items would be used? I know that at earlier times they only exchange items and doesn't know what the real value of it, it only depends on how important the thing is for the person. And at times of Christ there are already gold, silver, etc. which are already money like. What if money didn't exist? How do you think we would end up?

If money doesn't exist I think we live a wonderful life and we can survive in the things around us. Money is the cause of evil and problems to us because we need money to survive today. We going to barter items that we need.

Yup, I agree but I just can't imagine how things would go if money didn't exist. But there would still be stealing and other crimes.

If there is no money now as a form of trade, then we will be back to the period of barter trade and exchange. Goods will be exchanged with goods of the same value. Life and the economy will be chaotic, I am sure. cheers!

yup, but I'm not sure if it will be chaotic. They say that money is the root of all evil, just thinking if money isn't that too important now what kind of life we will be having. True that we will be exchanging goods, but isn't that a good thing? You only get the thing you need and exchange what you don't need to someone who needed it?
