Apparently, we can't underestimate the role money plays in our lives. Historically, money has always been an important part of human activities. Although it has evolved over time from its primitive representation and on how it was used crudely to a more effortless and directional usage of it today. Money was and it's still indispensable currency for any form of transactions one wants to carry out.
More precisely, I don't think there is anything anyone can buy without having money. Money is so relevant to the point that the holy book(Bible) referred to it as "money is for defence". Meaning that if you don't have money, you are vulnerable to any form of unwholesome treatment. In spite on the positive side of money, it also has its own negative aspect. That's why the same money was referred to by Bible as "root of all evil".
Unfortunately, due to all kinds of negativity surrounding money, so many people have resorted to chasing it in the wrong way. This days, you'll see young people using all kinds of underhanded means to make money. Political office holders keep playing with figures, in order for them to siphon public funds at the expense of the poor masses.
Finally, I see money to be good when made legitimately, and bad when made in a corruptible manner.
