The bible says at Eccl 7:12  "For wisdom is a protection just as money is a protection, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves the life of its owner.

It's a hell of a lot simpler than barter. And now, of course, we're moving into a post-money era for we have the benefit of EFT.

For me it's an enormous advantage. I'd write half a dozen cheques a year, the rest is all done with on-line transfers, Bpay, Paypal, credit cards, and a once-a-month trip to the bank for a cash withdrawal. It took a little while to get used to the idea, but I much prefer it this way.

I keep away from jungles. Rural areas in Oz are pretty civilised. They have credit card facilities. And robbery? The same thing you'd do if a thief took your money. Replace it. Cash is much less secure than electronic access.
