Thread Name: BS: Why do we need money?
Subject: RE: BS: Why do we need money?
Yes, but we have to buy stuff because of the money! We could just go and get the stuff we need whenever we need it, as on the Star Trek Next Generation show. This would result in a society where people do not feel the necessity to hoard 500 pairs of shoes (assuming they have enough money to buy that many shoes). In such a society, why would a person want more than, say, 3 or 4 pairs of suitable shoes for different situations?
