Most people think that we used Barter and Trade for thousands of years and then, only later on, used Gold as money for trade. This simply isn’t true. In fact, Money was invented long before Barter and Trade, and barter and trade probably never would have been invented if money had never been invented. In other words, the entire idea of Trade, is itself, an invention of mankind that doesn’t need to exist at all! But who invented it, and how and why, is the mystery of how Slavery came to be and continues to exist.
