  1. Evolutionary biologists tell us there are four kinds of trade programmed into our brain. 1) We exchange two things now. 2) We give (or get) something from somebody, and they owe us (or we owe them). 3) We give a tribal leader his due. 4) And we share equally among family members. Even lower animals can keep track of who owes what to whom. They've done all kinds of studies, and they find this behavior, of keeping tabs of each others debt, in primates, pigs and bats. So the idea of debt is build deeply into our DNA. So is the idea of taxes. The idea that we give the boss what the boss asks, in exchange for the leadership the boss provides, is instinctive. And the idea of collecting taxes shows up in every large society that has ever existed on Earth. And when you have more or less the SAME societal structures popping up in Mesopotamia in 2000 BC and then later in Meso-America in 500 AD, it's something that comes from inside our brains. The idea of money also comes from inside our brains. It doesn't need to be taught, or invented. Every time you get a group of people together, they come with a kind of money. Money represents a kind of meta-level idea of owing something to somebody. It's a kind of debt that can be transferred. Somebody gives you something, and you can either owe them, or give them an accepted form of money. So long as everybody accepts this form of currency, it works very much like potential energy. Farmers can use to pay their workers. The workers can use it to buy bread. All require energy. All can be traded for "money-energy." Ever since humans invented this money energy, the stuff people invented exploded. Once upon a time there was only people and the stuff that grew naturally. Once they figured out how to DELIBERATELY grow enough stuff to feed a lot more people, that's when money popped up. And once this happened, a new thought popped into everybody's head. What thought is this? "If I can figure out how to make something that EVERYBODY wants, I can get a LOT of money. If I can get a LOT of money, I never have to work again!" This same thought has driven every society to keep inventing more and more stuff. This is the SAME thought that will drive YOU to create a huge empire of wealth, if you allow it.

  2. I read a fascinating article by an economist. It was about how he watched his kids and their friends after they'd been trick or treating. There were about seven or eight of them. They'd just finished, and had chosen his house for the after party. Meaning they were going to dump out all their candy, count their loot, and make whatever trades they wanted. So they started trading the candy they HAD for the candy they wanted. But then something interesting happened. Without being told, these kids started using an intermediary "placeholder." They traded something they had for this intermediary placeholder. Then they would use this intermediary placeholder to trade for what they wanted. The intermediary placeholder they were using were Tootsie Rolls. The reason we humans use intermediary placeholders is something economists call the "coincidence of wants." If have something, and you want something else, this CAN present a problem. You have to find somebody that not only HAS what you want, but also WANTS what you have. Like if you were a kid on playground with a bag of chips. You'd have to wander around until you found something some other kid had, that you wanted MORE than the chips. But it would also require that whatever they had, they would want YOUR chips more. You might find another kid with a bag of cookies. And if you wanted the cookies more than the chips, you'd offer a trade. But the other kid would ONLY trade if he wanted the chips MORE than the cookies. Any time you have a bunch of people, a bunch of stuff (or the skills people have) you'll run into this problem. The "coincidence of wants" problem. But as this economist watched these kids, it seems that we humans have an INSTINCTIVE way of deciding what kind of "thing" is acceptable to be used as this intermediary placeholder. The little kids used Tootsie Rolls. Nobody needed to tell them to. They didn't even need to talk about it. They just sort of started using them. Of course, there is another, more common word for this "intermediary placeholder." Money. Or currency. And if you hopped into your time machine, and went back to ANY society in the past, or ANY society in the future, you would find different forms of currency. Once you have enough people with enough skills, and some form of currency, then economic activity will EXPLODE. Everything you need to MAXIMIZE how much money you make is already in your brain. Since they are very essential human instincts. All you need to do is figure out to calibrate these instincts to MAXIMIZE your income. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
