¿QUE ES EL DINERO ?

¿WHAT IS MONEY?

Hombre-pensando-en-dinero.jpg

¿Alguna vez te has preguntado qué es el dinero ?, ¿por que es que lo puedes usar para pagar por algo que compras en el supermercado, por que es que la otra persona le da valor, por que lo recibe y lo acepta como pago por lo que compras?, Esas mismas preguntas me las hice yo en muchas ocasiones, pero no tenía la respuesta, solo lo usaba para comprar cosas o pagar por servicios, pero nunca me había detenido a averiguar en realidad que es el Dinero.

La curiosidad de saber y tener claro que es el Dinero surgió cuando conocí sobre las Criptomonedas, la necesidad de comprender por qué un archivo encriptado combinado con una base de datos distribuida que almacena los registros de las transacciones de ese archivo llegó de valer "NADA" en el año 2009, a valer 20.000 dólares el 19 de diciembre del año 2017.

Mi intención en esta publicación no es profundizar en las criptomonedas y por qué de su valor, solo las nombro por que fueron la inspiración que me llevó a despertar mi curiosidad sobre qué es el dinero para poder entender el por qué las criptomonedas tienen valor, en otras publicaciones me iré adentrando en otros paradigmas con los que pretendo, así como hice yo, llevar a mis lectores a que saquen sus propias conclusiones sobre el dinero, la riqueza, la libertad económica, el modelo económico mundial y otros más elementos que nos hacen esclavos del dinero.

Después de ver muchos videos en Youtube que hablaban sobre macroeconomía, teorías económicas, la historia del dinero por fin brilló la luz al final del túnel oscuro de mi ignorancia, esa ceguera mental de algo tan importante que influye en mi vida y en la vida de todos quienes dependemos del Dinero (todos los que vivimos en medio de la sociedad moderna, regida por el modelo económico capitalista globalizado) y que nunca nos habíamos detenido en entenderlo, solo lo usamos y dependemos del tan anhelado DINERO.

Paradigma del Dinero

Have you ever wondered what money is? Why is it that you can use it to pay for something you buy in the supermarket, why is it that the other person gives it value, why they receive it and accept it as payment What do you buy? Those same questions I asked myself on many occasions, but I did not have the answer, I only used it to buy things or pay for services, but I had never stopped to find out what Money really is.

The curiosity to know and be clear about what Money is arose when I learned about Cryptocurrencies, the need to understand why an encrypted file combined with a distributed database that stores the records of the transactions of that file came to be worth "NOTHING" in 2009, to be worth $ 20,000 on December 19, 2017.

My intention in this publication is not to delve into cryptocurrencies and why their value, I only name them because they were the inspiration that led me to awaken my curiosity about what money is in order to understand why cryptocurrencies have value, in Other publications I will go into other paradigms with which I intend, as I did, to lead my readers to draw their own conclusions about money, wealth, economic freedom, the world economic model and other elements that make us slaves of money.

After watching many videos on Youtube that talked about macroeconomics, economic theories, the history of money finally shone the light at the end of the dark tunnel of my ignorance, that mental blindness of something so important that it influences my life and the life of all of us who depend on Money (all of us who live in the midst of modern society, governed by the globalized capitalist economic model) and who had never stopped to understand it, we only use it and depend on the much desired MONEY.




Money Paradigm

DINERO EDITADO.jpg

Para entender qué es el dinero debemos recapitular la historia del ser humano, devolvernos en el tiempo para entender cómo nació la idea del Dinero, "UNA EXCELENTE IDEA PARA LOS MONOPOLIOS QUE LO CONTROLAN".

Trueque

To understand what money is, we must recapitulate the history of the human being, go back in time to understand how the idea of Money was born, "AN EXCELLENT IDEA FOR THE MONOPOLIES THAT CONTROL IT".

Barter

TRUEQUE EDITADO.jpg

El Trueque, es la Evidencia más antigua de la primera idea del Dinero, los primeros vestigios del nacimiento del hombre civilizado, intercambiaban elementos que no se daban o conseguían en las regiones en donde vivían unos u otros. Los elementos que intercambiaban tenían un valor para cada uno de ellos, el medio de intercambio más utilizado y que se convirtió casi en una moneda era la sal, la recibían como cambio de cualquier otro elemento, un recipiente con sal marina podía ser el equivalente a una cabra, un abrigo de pieles de animales, equivalía posiblemente a tres atados de hortalizas, etc Esa aceptación que le daban a un elemento por otro es una de las característica del Dinero de las cuales hablaré en otra publicación, "debe ser aceptado ese elemento como medio de pago".

La aparición del Oro y la Plata como medios de pago

Barter, is the oldest Evidence of the first idea of Money, the first vestiges of the birth of civilized man, exchanged elements that were not given or obtained in the regions where one or the other lived. The items they exchanged had a value for each one of them, the most used medium of exchange that became almost a currency was salt, they received it as exchange for any other item, a container with sea salt could be the equivalent of a goat, a coat of animal skins, was possibly equivalent to three bundles of vegetables, etc. That acceptance that they gave to one element for another is one of the characteristics of Money that I will talk about in another publication, "that element must be accepted as a means of payment ".


The appearance of Gold and Silver as means of payment

ORO Y PLATA.jpg

Cuando se descubrieron los metales y se empezaron a usar para crear herramientas y utensilios, El oro y la plata por sus características especiales el hombre los clasificó como "Metales preciosos", es ahí donde surgen otras maneras diferentes de intercambio de bienes usando estos metales.

Con la existencia del oro y plata, era más fácil los intercambios de bienes, ya que estos metales cumplían con otras características del dinero actual que hacen parte de su naturaleza para dicho fin, estos metales son divisibles, se pueden dividir en porciones más pequeñas según el equivalente de lo que se pagará con una porción de de oro o plata, era más fácil llevarlos consigo, solo guardarlos en un morral, algo que sería muy complicado si se pagara con sal, imaginate cargando bultos de sal para todos lados como medio de pago, ahora, si dejaras la sal bajo la lluvia ya no tendrias tu dinero.

El uso de las monedas del oro y plata y el curioso nacimiento del papel moneda y los bancos

When metals were discovered and they began to be used to create tools and utensils, gold and silver, due to their special characteristics, man classified them as "Precious metals", that is where other different ways of exchanging goods using these metals arise.

With the existence of gold and silver, it was easier to exchange goods, since these metals met other characteristics of current money that are part of its nature for this purpose, these metals are divisible, they can be divided into smaller portions according to the equivalent of what will be paid with a portion of gold or silver, it was easier to take them with you, just keep them in a backpack, something that would be very complicated if it were paid with salt, imagine carrying bundles of salt everywhere as a means of payment, now, if you left the salt in the rain you would no longer have your money.

The use of gold and silver coins and the curious birth of paper money and banks

A partir de aquí se vuelve interesante el asunto !, si aún tus ojos no se han iluminado con la chispa de la claridad con respecto a que es el dinero, no te preocupes, en esta misma etapa yo estaba igual cuando averigua sobre lo mismo, sin embargo presta mucha atención pues lo que vas a leer en adelante te irá abriendo los ojos.

A medida que el ser humano fue descubriendo, creando, organizándose socialmente, así mismo ha evolucionado la necesidad del control social, de la jerarquización de la sociedad, las clases sociales no son tema de la civilización moderna, es una enfermedad nacida con el mismo nacimiento de la civilización humana. Los imperios antiguos, las clases sociales, la jerarquías del poder heredadas por tradición y costumbre con una fuerte influencia religiosa como garantía fueron los que llevaron las riendas del control del dinero y los bancos, pero no crearon estos dos conceptos (aunque debería llamarlos Negocios), ¿si no fueron estos, entonces quienes ?.

Para contestar la pregunta del final de parrafo anterior, primero debo contarte que cuando el hombre empezó a usar el oro y la plata como medios de pago por bienes y servicios, ya existían organizaciones sociales estructuradas, basadas en gobiernos monárquicos autoritarios, dictatoriales y monopolistas del poder, en cabeza de reyes, monarcas y otras más denominaciones. Estos gobernantes absolutos, para controlar a sus gobernados y como reconocimiento a su EGO, establecieron obligatorio para sus territorios, que quienes usarán el oro y la plata para comprar bienes y servicios tenían hacerlo con piezas de oro "Monedas" que debían tener estampadas la imagen de el monarca o gobernante y de su reino, esta exigencia la solucionaron los herreros, hombre hábiles para trabajar los metales quienes acuñaron el oro y la plata que les llevaban los habitantes de esa región para convertirlas en monedas.

Nacimiento de la primera idea de banco y de papel moneda

From here the matter becomes interesting! If your eyes have not yet lit up with the spark of clarity regarding what money is, do not worry, at this same stage I was the same when you found out about the same thing, However, pay close attention because what you are going to read from now on will open your eyes.

As the human being was discovering, creating, organizing himself socially, the need for social control has also evolved, for the hierarchization of society, social classes are not the subject of modern civilization, it is a disease born with the same birth of human civilization. The ancient empires, the social classes, the hierarchies of power inherited by tradition and custom with a strong religious influence as a guarantee were those that took the reins of control of money and banks, but they did not create these two concepts (although I should call them Business) If not these, then who?

To answer the question at the end of the previous paragraph, first I must tell you that when man began to use gold and silver as means of payment for goods and services, structured social organizations already existed, based on authoritarian, dictatorial and monopoly monarchical governments. power, at the head of kings, monarchs and other more denominations. These absolute rulers, to control their governed and in recognition of their EGO, established mandatory for their territories, that those who will use gold and silver to buy goods and services had to do it with pieces of gold "Coins" that should have the image stamped of the monarch or ruler and his kingdom, this requirement was solved by blacksmiths, men skilled in working with metals, who minted the gold and silver that the inhabitants of that region brought them to convert them into coins.






Birth of the first idea of bank and paper money

BANCOS Y PAPEL MONEDA.jpg

Los herreros eran los únicos que contaban con la experiencia, las habilidades y las herramientas para transformar un trozo de oro o plata en monedas, por tal motivo todos acudían a ellos y se volvieron muy importantes en la sociedad del momento; Surgió una necesidad que transformó totalmente esa costumbre de usar las monedas y llevó a los herreros a otro nivel. Quienes usaban las monedas de oro y plata y las tenían que llevar consigo, estaban sometidas a que las robaran para quitarles sus monedas, eran asaltados mientras viajaban de una región a otra, estas circunstancias obligaron a idear soluciones para que su riqueza no tuviera riesgo, fue así que en algún momento los dueños de dichas monedas se les ocurrió decirle a quien se las había fabricado si "El Herrero", que se las guardara, pues confiaban no solo por que las fabrico si no por que para hacerlo le entregaron el metal para poderlo hacer.

Pero la pregunta era, si el herrero se la guardaba, como las usarían para comprar o intercambiar por bienes o servicios, fue ahí donde al herrero se le ocurrió entregarle al dueño de esas monedas un papel donde este mismo, escribía con su puño y letra la cantidad de monedas que tenía a nombre de esa persona y lo firmaba ¿y que paso con ese papel?, pues al comienzo solo era un recibo que garantizaba para el dueño de las monedas su propiedad frente al resguardo del herrero para que le devolviera la cantidad que en el papel decía. Aún no está resulta la pregunta de cómo podría usar el dueño de las monedas si no las llevaba con él, pues muy facil, ya les habia contado que los herreros eran muy populares por que fabricaban las monedas, generaban confianza por es motivo, eso significaba que el papel que ellos entregaban al propietario de las monedas que se las daba a guardar firmado por este generaba la misma confianza, fue así que que los dueños de las monedas empezaron a usar los documentos que les entregaba el herrero para comprar y vender por el equivalente de las monedas que parecían registradas en ese mismo papel, pues existía la certeza que dichas monedas las guardaba el herrero y en cualquier momento las podían ir a reclamar usando ese papel.

Es así que el herrero es la primera versión de un banco, por que es más que claro que las guardaba pero cobraba alguna cosa por esa protección "No se si tan usurero como los bancos actuales", y el papel que entregaba este al dueño de las monedas se convirtió en el primer papel moneda usado.

El Herrero se enriquece

The blacksmiths were the only ones who had the experience, skills and tools to transform a piece of gold or silver into coins, for this reason everyone came to them and they became very important in the society of the moment; A need arose that totally transformed that custom of using coins and took blacksmiths to another level. Those who used the gold and silver coins and had to carry them with them, were subjected to being stolen to take away their coins, they were assaulted while traveling from one region to another, these circumstances forced them to devise solutions so that their wealth was not at risk, It was thus that at some point the owners of these coins occurred to them to tell whoever had made them if "El Herrero", to keep them, because they trusted not only because I made them but because to do so they gave them the metal to be able to do it.

But the question was, if the blacksmith kept it for them, how would they use them to buy or exchange for goods or services, it was there that the blacksmith happened to give the owner of those coins a piece of paper where he himself wrote with his own hand the amount of coins that he had in the name of that person and he signed it, and what happened to that paper? Well, at the beginning it was only a receipt that guaranteed for the owner of the coins his property in front of the blacksmith's safeguard so that he could return the amount that the paper said. The question of how the owner of the coins could use if he did not carry them with him is not yet resolved, because very easy, I had already told you that blacksmiths were very popular because they made the coins, they generated trust for that reason, that meant that the paper that they gave to the owner of the coins that they were given to keep signed by him generated the same confidence, it was thus that the owners of the coins began to use the documents that the blacksmith gave them to buy and sell for the equivalent to the coins that seemed registered on that same paper, since there was a certainty that said coins were kept by the blacksmith and at any time they could go and claim them using that paper.

Thus, the blacksmith is the first version of a bank, because it is more than clear that he kept them but charged something for that protection "I do not know if as usurer as current banks", and the paper that he gave to the owner of Coins became the first paper money used.



The blacksmith gets rich

Espero que en estos momentos de la lectura, este aclarando tu mente sobre lo que es el dinero, si no es así, no importa, mas adelante tu mente brillara de conocimiento ...

Imagina si los papeles que tu firmas los aceptaran en todo tu país para comprar casas, automóviles, comida, bueno de todo lo que quieras comprar, pues eso mismo fue lo que se imaginó ese herrero cuando su mente paso de la bondad de resguardar las monedas de quienes le confiaron su capital, a querer crear su propia riqueza, pues así fue, el herrero pensó .... si la gente confía en mis recibos con mi firma, por que no hago muchos recibos con diferentes cantidades de monedas que supuestamente tengo guardadas y me hago rico comprando lo que yo quiera ¡¡¡. Dicho y hecho, así fue, el herrero empezó a hacer muchos recibos con diferentes montos de monedas que supuestamente él tenía guardadas y empezó a darse la gran vida, compraba, derrochaba y de un momento a otro se convirtió en un hombre muy rico.

Pero como nada dura eternamente, al herrero se le acabo su dicha cuando las personas empezaron a sospechar de las riquezas de este y la forma en cómo las obtuvo y fue así que de manera masiva empezaron a llegar a su casa con los recibos firmados por el a reclamar las monedas que él mismo había declarado con su puño y letra y se encontraron con la gran sorpresa que había muchas más monedas declaradas y recibos circulando en la región que la existencia de monedas en su poder. Ya se pueden imaginar qué le pasó al señor herrero, en una época en que existía, "aquí hablaré como una de mis profesiones", no existía debido proceso, un juicio justo, mucho menos un abogado y unos derechos humanos para el acusado, la Horca sería la mejor opción.

Y después de esto, imaginense que ocurrió después con el cuento del dinero !!!

Gracias por llegar hata el final, esperen la continuacion en la proxima publicación

I hope that in these moments of reading, you are clearing your mind about what money is, if not, it does not matter, later your mind will shine with knowledge ...

Imagine if the papers that you sign accepted all over your country to buy houses, cars, food, well anything you want to buy, because that was what that blacksmith imagined when his mind passed from the goodness of protecting the coins of those who entrusted their capital to him, to wanting to create their own wealth, well it was, the blacksmith thought ... if people trust my receipts with my signature, why don't I make many receipts with different amounts of coins that I supposedly have saved and I get rich buying what I want. Said and done, that's how it was, the blacksmith began to make many receipts with different amounts of coins that he supposedly had saved and began to live the high life, he bought, wasted and from one moment to another he became a very rich man.

But since nothing lasts forever, the blacksmith's happiness ran out when people began to suspect his riches and the way in which he obtained them and it was thus that in a massive way they began to arrive at his house with the receipts signed by him. to claim the coins that he himself had declared in his own handwriting and were to the great surprise that there were many more declared coins and receipts circulating in the region than the existence of coins in his possession. You can already imagine what happened to Mr. Smith, at a time when there was, "here I will speak as one of my professions", there was no due process, a fair trial, much less a lawyer and human rights for the accused, the Gallows would be the best option.

And after this, imagine what happened next with the money story!
