The most important the most important of the four

The most Important The most important of the four innovations or creations that I choose is the Paper; paper led to many important by-products that we use today, one of those by-products is paper money. Paper money is important because it is the global accepted method of trade. Before paper money, people would exchange goods for goods or services. The problem with this method is that both ends must have something the other wants. For example, if you needed corn and wanted to trade your services as a carpenter but the corn farmer wanted eggs, you would not be able to trade. Paper money allows you to pay for the corn in cash because the farmer knows he can take that money and use it elsewhere.

    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.
