Show Me The Money!


Read through the following text and look up any vocabulary you are not sure about before answering the questions.

It doesn’t matter what you say or how hard you try to persuade people that money isn’t as important as other things; the simple fact is that you can’t make people believe it. We are all aware that money is essential to survival in today’s world.

The overwhelming majority of people need money in order to purchase products and services and to cover the day-to-day costs of living, such as their mortgage or grocery bill. It’s really quite straightforward: if you don’t have enough money, you won’t have enough to eat and you won’t have enough to keep warm because there’s nothing more you can do about it if you don’t have sufficient finances.

Although money is not always the root of all evilĀ in the world, it is certainly an essential part of understanding how our society works.

You can see this in many different ways, such as how money is used to buy political influence, how it determines the types of jobs you can get, and the schools you can attend.

But does having money make someone more likely to be evil? Or does being evilĀ make it more likely that someone will have a lot of money? People have been asking questions like these and others for thousands of years, and they continue to do so even in today.
