Lecture 5 : The Theory of Money Key Points 1. Money is the most important commodity in a market economy. 2. The role of money is to make trade easier. 3. Every commodity has a different marketability, a different acceptability. 4. Factors which contribute to the different marketabilities of different things: a. the number of persons who might want them for their own satisfaction. b. the question of their portability. c. quantity desired. 5. Economic goods can be divided into three classes or groups: a. producers' or production goods, sometimes called capital goods b. consumers' goods and services c. the media of exchange, more popularly known as moneys 6. Money is neither a producers' good nor a consumers' good. It is merely a medium for facilitating exchanges. 7. Every increase in consumers' goods and producers' goods helps all of us, and on on the other hand, every decrease, every loss, in consumers' goods and producers' goods, every potential producer kept unemployed, hurts all of us.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
