Barter System:

Barter System It's hard to imagine our world without money. A long time ago there were no coins. There was no such thing as money. Before money was invented people had to get their food, clothing and other needs by trading things. There is a special name for this kind of trading. The name is barter. The word barter comes from a French word, barater , which means " to trade ." When you swap baseball cards with a friend or trade your chocolate pudding for a cookie at lunchtime you are bartering because you are exchanging something you have for something you want.

Barter System:

Barter System People traded some of the things they didn't need for things they wanted or needed. Even then people had different jobs and skills. Some people were good hunters, some were better farmers than others, some people made beautiful clay pots, some were skilled carpenters, and so on. There were many different ways in which these people bartered, or traded, for things they needed. Most of the time, bartering was a good way of getting things. But sometimes there were problems. What happened when you had something to trade but nobody wanted it? What happened when the traders couldn't agree on what was a fair trade? The following have all been used as money in different parts of the world: Pepper – Europe Stones – Pacific Islands (in Micronesia, stone money is still used) Coils of red feathers – Pacific Islands Dogs’ teeth – New Guinea Bread – Iraq Iron nails – Scotland Whales’ teeth – Fiji

The Indian Rupee:

The Indian Rupee Ever since the dawn of civilization, man has been trading with each other. In the ancient times when there was no concept of money, people used barter system. In this system goods were exchanged with each other instead of paying money. Gradually, with development, metals were used to cast coins. The Indian rupee symbol is derived from the Devanagari consonant " र" ( Ra) with an added horizontal bar. It is also derived from the English consonant "R" without the vertical line, with added two horizontal bars, (similar in comparison with Yen and Euro symbols) The origin of the word "rupee" is found in the word rūp or rūpā , which means "silver" in many Indo-Aryan languages such as Hindi. The Sanskrit word rupyakam ( Devanagari : रूप्यकम्) means coin of silver. The derivative word Rūpaya was used to denote the coin introduced by Sher Shah Suri during his reign from 1540 to 1545 CE. The original Rūpaya was a silver coin weighing 175 grains troy (about 11.34 grams. The coin has been used since then, even during the times of British India. Formerly the rupee was divided into 16 annas , 64 paise , or 192 pies .

Using credit cards is similar to taking small loans at small intervals of time and repaying the same timely. And if the due payment is not done, interest is charged! A debit card allows expenditure only to the extent of funds in the account. And hence ensures that no overspending occurs. Debit cards did not exist 10 years back; only ATM cards did. An ATM card can be used to withdraw money from ATM's( automated teller machine also popularly known as any time money). In the last decade, ATM cards have been combined as debit cards and the same plastic can be used both for withdrawing money and making purchases. Debit cards are fast replacing cash or cheques. People actively use debit cards to pay their bills; and since there is no fear of extra expenditure/ delayed payments and hence high interest. Plastic Money
