To speak without inhibitions money would first have to be able to accommodate us without inhibitions.
Intellectual workers are construction workers who try to build theories using ideas as bricks.
Like all ideas are different we can not join them indiscriminately, as we do with the bricks that are all the same.
The result of our work is useful for some and useless for everyone else. For this reason, our office is like any other.
From an idea I will try to construct a theory, that should be easy and quick, not to bore.
The mother thought says, "everything is useful produce relief or pleasure".
Examples: food is useful because it alleviates hunger; is useful because it produces a set pleasure.
I add another idea-brick, which says: "Money can be exchanged for any goods".
This way, I move: If a commodity is useful because I am pleased and relieved or if the money can be exchanged for any goods, then money is useful because it alleviates or indirectly pleased.
With these few items now say if the bread is useful because it alleviates hunger and may be purchased with money, this is indirectly helpful.
BACKGROUND: bread and money are basically the same because, directly or indirectly, relieved. Both are useful for anyone because they relieve or pleasure.
If we can talk quietly of hunger and bread, would be able to talk with Similar tranquility of money.
Our reasoning tells us that we could talk money matters with the same freedom that we discuss how to relieve us, however, here appears something unexpected: If you can not talk about money is because this is also useful to please and our culture does not encourage the enjoyment, rather the conviction.
In short, to speak without inhibitions money would first have to be able to accommodate us without inhibitions.
Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): Hablar de dinero sin inhibiciones.
