Cash makes us even poorer

Do you want, as the grandfather of the heroine of one joke, “so that there are no poor”? Take away their money. In particular, cash – coins and pieces of paper. It is the despicable metal, which is in the hands of low-income citizens, and is their worst enemy. On the one hand, it is difficult to consider money as a problem if you can afford to heat a fireplace with them, for example.

Sometimes it seems that all we lack for complete happiness is a certain amount of multi-colored pieces of paper with watermarks. Saying yes to money, you say no to poverty – everything seems to be logical. A bundle of notes in a box with socks is seen only as a guarantee of a comfortable life and carefree old age.

The irony is that most people who love cash and get used to it, do not deny themselves the pleasure of using electronic money. Even those who are demented as credit cards are still buying magnetic cards to travel by public transport, use discount cards when shopping, have a bank account and try to pay for utility bills through terminals so as not to lose time in queues.

How to make money on a rover

Where to start your career as a famous person, or how to earn your first working money or “build” yourself a decent side income? Make someone paint a fence instead of yourself, like Tom Sawyer did? Sell ​​tickets to Failure so you don’t really fail, like Bender? So we already have it without him.

In any case, we must remember the main rule of commerce better than the Snow Queen adviser from the movie “The Snow Queen”, filmed back in Soviet times: “In summer, ice is rare and I sell ice. In winter, flowers are rare and I sell flowers! ”That is, you need to get rich on rarities, and today the“ most important rarity ”is Mars, where people are preparing to fly and where American spacecraft-rovers have landed.

Well, in any case, you can start your own business from an exhibition – one of the most effective means of public relations and advertising. And not paintings in the style of pop art or sculptural compositions from iron scrap, but … an exhibition of all-terrain vehicle models for the exploration of Mars. Landing apparatus “Kyuriosity” is at everyone’s hearing, which means we must take advantage of this. And today there were people who were able to make money on models of Martian all-terrain vehicles!
