Money is any item or verifiable record that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts in a particular country or socio-economic context, or is easily converted to such a form. The main functions of money are distinguished as: a medium of exchange; a unit of account; a store of value; and, sometimes, a standard of deferred payment. Any item or verifiable record that fulfils these functions can be considered as money.

“ When we are shown scenes of starving children in Africa, with a call for us to do something to help them, the underlying ideological message is something like: "Don't think, don't politicize, forget about the true causes of their poverty, just act, contribute money, so that you will not have to think! ...more ”

[close] In this group, we will be discussing ways to find the best auto insurance rates. Please share whatever tips you have and whatever strategies you have used in the past to find cheap car insurance. To start the discussion, let me say that the best way to find cheap insurance is to have an economical car. Driving a safe, cheap, small car usually leads to lower insurance rates. If you want the cheapest rates, also always go with the minimum required by the state. Discounts are also usually available for drivers over age 25, good credit scores, and car safety features. While most of these techniques to obtaining cheap insurance are well known, very rarely are they used. Which Car Is The Best? The safest car on the road, will usually bring a lower insurance rate. The size of the vehicle also matters, as well as color and how fast it is able to drive. A safe car, usually has an alarm, anti-lock breaks, power features and airbags. The Minimum Needed A consumer should know what the minimum required insurance is for their automobile. To get the most affordable car insurance, the state minimum should be purchased. Websites are available for these calculations, and they should be written down, if not memorized so a potential policy can be checked. Some insurance companies will suggest additional insurance, and avoid using the word optional. To keep his or her rates low a candidate should always purchase the minimum required insurance, and add options later if needed. Affordable Car Insurance With Discounts Discounts are given for untarnished driving records, driving courses, age and good grades. Students are usually the best candidates for additional discounts and should buy economical cars, to lower the burden. Affordable car insurance is also more apparent, when one has a perfect driving record. If a driving record isn't perfect, one should consider a defensive driving course, to keep his or her car insurance affordable. Happy discussion!

"Read 500 pages like this every day," Warren Buffett said, while reaching toward a stack of manuals and papers. "That's how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it."
