It’s all about money (Quotations about money)

Money, one of the earliest and most significant inventions of civilization, is essential to the development of trade. Money is anything that is commonly accepted by a group of people for the exchange of goods, services, or resources and repayment of debts.

Gold and money

Gold and money

Many of us are just too uptight when we think about money. Money is a reality, a permanent feature of our everyday lives. It gives our lives a particular rhythm, a particular «charm», a particular perception of the world and our place in it.

Money is capable of invoking the whole range of emotions. Money has been lauded and cursed, it has been dreamed of and disdained. What is money – good or evil? It brings stability and instability and makes people looking for and running away from it. Money is capable of creating and destroying, of uniting and disuniting. It makes people partners and rivals and can influence the fate of individuals and whole nations. But what does money bring – freedom or dependence? People obtain money working hard and playing and spend it with joy and sadness. Man makes money, and money makes man: it forms his way of living and his way of thinking.

    Listen to Dickens, Franklin, and Jefferson and you won’t go wrong.

    Today, with a confiscatory tax system, a penny saved is much more than a penny earned.
    Why? Because when you earn a penny they tax it, when you spend a penny they tax it. So far if you save a penny they only tax the interest it earns.
    Example; if I work all day long to save $1000 dollars by doing something for myself that would cost $1000 if I hired it done I have saved 15% to 28% on income tax I would have had to pay had I earned the money to pay someone else to do it. Likewise the 15% Social Security tax. In addition they would have to charge an Iowa state sales tax of 7% tacked on to the bill.
    So by doing it myself I can in effect pay myself the $1000 for the job PLUS 28% Income tax PLUS 15% FICA tax (SS tax) PLUS 7% sales tax to come up with a total savings of $1500.

    So in effect a penny saved is a penny and a half earned.

    Screw the Tax Man, Do it yourself and save.

    Thanks for the rant.
