Money, Money, Money is the most respected and the most worship word of our generation and time. The popular forms are papers and metals with human head on most of them. The words “billionaires and millionaires” are the kings and queens of money kingdom. Is the invention of money really the genesis of corruption? I don’t think so but it took it to an uncontrollable level and the inferno cannot be put off by the best fire department in the world. During the barter trade days, the items involved were too cumbersome to ignite severe corruption. For instance, where would one keep a million goats or cows without their neighbors knowing? Presently, you can keep a check of 10billion dollars in your brief case walked by many people without anyone having a single idea of what is in your case. This is a recipe for massive corruption……..more severe in third world and developing nations………I don’t want to mention names or make a list.
The big question here is, who invented money? So far, I know men or human did. So, should this translate to the statement that men or human invented corruption? We may as well conclude that human through the invention of money and other means of exchanges is the root of corruption. Would corruption would have been minimum if we kept trade by barter? Folks the debate is on.
