WHAT DOES MONEY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

money

Money

Money is any object or verifiable record that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts in a particular country or socio-economic context. The main functions of money are distinguished as: a medium of exchange; a unit of account; a store of value; and, occasionally in the past, a standard of deferred payment. Any kind of object or verifiable record that fulfills these functions can be considered money. Money is historically an emergent market phenomenon establishing a commodity money, but nearly all contemporary money systems are based on fiat money. Fiat money, like any check or note of debt, is without intrinsic use value as a physical commodity. It derives its value by being declared by a government to be legal tender; that is, it must be accepted as a form of payment within the boundaries of the country, for "all debts, public and private". Such laws in practice cause fiat money to acquire the value of any of the goods and services that it may be traded for within the nation that issues it. The money supply of a country consists of currency and usually includes bank money.

Definition of money in the English dictionary

The first definition of money in the dictionary is a medium of exchange that functions as legal tender. Other definition of money is the official currency, in the form of banknotes, coins, etc, issued by a government or other authority. Money is also a particular denomination or form of currency.
