The forgotten value of money

Money is the equivalent of all the effort we made to win, but we spend it without remembering how much it costs.

Until 30 years ago, most casinos allow bettors roulette buy tokens or tickets put directly on the numbers chosen.

More than once, the dealers had to clarify confusing situations because, of course, tickets are all equal and wanted more of a revived show the owner of a winning ticket to the detriment of anyone who had actually bet.

Finally, cutting to the chase, I were banned gambling cash : only cards with cash value can be used, but are different for each player.

What was achieved unexpectedly? That gamblers play more and more, they say, because the chips seem to objects without economic value while pulling on the green cloth airplane caused a greater sense of risk.

But it does not stop there. What is money really?

Money is sweat, physical and mental effort, getting up early, fatigue, irritating receive orders, fight with some awful partner, not to play with the children, move from home to the workplace for thousands of hours in the life, reduce family and friends meeting for lack of time and energy.

In short, money is all it costs us win.

Like us happens in casinos, where brightly colored tiles are played instead of banknotes, our salary no charge when we remember how we had to do to win.

The report serves as a reminder and also to forget. We have a useful memory, because we remember what we should relive pleasant and unpleasant forget it.

We spend our money irrationally because we forget how much it cost to win.
