When I say that, I’m referring to thinking of money as a “good”. There is more money than there is just about any other good, after all it’s abundance in the form of liquidity is why we use money in the first place. As a result, it’s much more common to come across money, than it is a beautiful art piece. It’s much more common to come across money than it is a consultant who can help you with exactly what your business is missing. It’s much more common to come across money than it is the best tacos you’ve ever had in your life.
The point is the world is driven off of supply and demand, if you want money it’s likely you need to just start with something valuable like great art, smart services, or amazing food, and trade it for something that is less rare, namely money.
I remember as a child having my first thoughts that I could just go out and make money. That there were many different ways to do so. I’ve had a few conversations that have reminded me not everyone has had this epiphany yet, so I thought it might be beneficial to share.
