The older I get, the more I’m convinced that time is money (and money is time). We’re commonly taught that money is a “store of value”. But what does “store of value” actually mean? It’s a repository of past effort that can be applied to future purchases. Really, money is a store of time. (Well, a store of productive time, anyhow.)
Now, having made this argument, I’ll admit that time and money aren’t exactly the same thing. Money is a store of time, sure, but the two concepts have some differences too.

Wealth Creation and Finding Prosperity
I often say it doesn’t matter who your parents were or how you were raised. The ability to prosper has nothing to do with how much money you have but, rather, what you are willing to create for yourself. So, how about focusing on wealth creation?
Creation is about stepping out of the points of view you have about money (which are normally the beliefs and perspectives you adopted from your parents, friends and communities) and opening yourself up to greater choice and opportunity.

How To Know When Renting A Home Makes Sense
By J.D. Roth May 10 2018
I’ve been a homeowner for 24 of the last 25 years. Based on this, you might think I’m an advocate of homeownership over renting. That’s not the case. The older I get, the more I appreciate there’s no correct answer in the perennial “is it better to rent or buy?” debate.
Sometimes buying a home makes the most sense. Sometimes renting is the smarter choice.
In an editorial in the June 2007 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, Knight Kiplinger wrote, “It often costs less to rent. The annual cost of owning a property, be it a house or a condo, is usually greater than the cost of renting, after taxes.” I agree.
RockCharlie229: currency conversion I watch it daily. As the rate is adjusted you can see what it is going to cost, this is a fantastic tool Bravo!! Watch for the encore:-)
Alison: I really appreciate Rockcharlie’s post of Mastercard’s currency converter calculator.
One can look at that link as a useful tool to watch for a rate change but based on other internationally recognized currencies currently reflected on that link why does Iraq’s current rate ever have to change???
I am asking this question not to be troublesome but as a student asking what seems to me to be a perfectly legitimate question.
