Money is an everyday essential that is needed to buy anything and to get any service. On average, a human works about 58% of their lifetime working in order to earn money so that they can fulfill these basic needs such as feed the family, or buy clothes. An employee receives the paycheck from the employer, likewise, the employer has earned that money from another authority. But, the question is, where does this money come from? Well, the US economy, like others, is run based on GDP(Gross Domestic Product), as well as, inflation and deflation in a nation. The GDP is important in discovering a nation’s financial needs because it indicates the annual profit of the nation, in addition, inflation signals that we need to generate more money for the nation because the products and services are getting more expensive, therefore, one needs more money to afford them. On the contrary, deflation signals the need to generate less money because the services are now below the regular price and therefore, one is likely to afford more than what they could have. What makes it a difficult process is the fact that the experts of the “United States Money-handling Administration”(USMA) have to discuss briefly about the needs of the nation. The USMA was formed after the United States experienced the Great Depression in the 1929-1930. Once they have noticed a shift in the ratio, the USMA, then, follows the approval process from the Financial Department followed by generating more cash. There are forces specifically working on the supply and demand of money in the nation. Once the market has disclosed the needs of the nation in order to maintain a running and affordable economy, the process of money-printing comes to play. Then, the imported money making machines are used to print cash. The cash is then passed out to the banks and other financial institutes to make it available to the public. Another way of making the money available to the public is through a raise in the pay. If the nation is experiencing an inflation, then the employees get a raise on the paycheck because they need more money the afford a simple living. A raise in the paycheck is common, though, reducing the salary is extremely uncommon, therefore, that is never an option. So, if the nation experiences a deflation, then people experience a surplus of money where they tend to buy more things with little money. Likewise, inflation causes shortage of money, and deflation results in surplus of money. To conclude, to avoid poverty and homelessness in a nation, it is very important to have a working and ethically supportive USMA/money-handling administration to keep the nation’s economy from crashing.
