The purpose of money is to make it easy for buyers and sellers to exchange their ideas, goods, and services. If we keep this basic truth about money in mind, it can eliminate confusion about money. The exchangers of wealth are called producers and consumers of wealth, or labor and consumers. Actually, the producers and consumers and buyers and sellers are the same people.
