Burning Money is Financial Crime and Waste in China
currency market

Image by epSos.de
Free picture of the burning money that is red and burned. This financial photo was created for you by the best monetary friend epSos.de and it can be used for free, if you link epSos.de as the original author of the image.

In the Chinese culture , burning money is considered a crime and waste as long as it is not a sacrifice.

The rich Asian people who waste money in China are considered to be making a crime against the society . This burned paper bill is a very common site in Asia, because there is a religion that considers that fire and the smoke from the burned bills can be a good sacrifice to the gods of prosperity. Many religious and superficial people burn those paper bills in the little corners that are decorated with statues of their gods.

The main topic of this picture is the business of finance and insurance, but you can also use it for all topics that are related to financial and criminal activities like corruption and waste of money. All of the dirty and illegal activities that are being committed in politics, or organised mafia.

The damage to this paper bill is not an accident. It was burned on purpose of the creative art in the financial market of failed investments where cash and currency is burned during the daily business of wasting investments and income savings of the people who bought loans for earning more money with foreign investments. The gradual loss of money is incorporated into the financial scam plans of shady finances with those red bills that are often used to sell beautiful dreams to old people who never learn from history.

Wasting money and life from insecure people is not nice. The lost savings are often a wrong bet for the people who make investments like gambling on dark insurances or bank businesses that they never can understand. The loss of money is often a personal crisis above the economic crisis that is wasting capital Across Asia. Mafia that is trying to make money fast by laundering bribes from the government or shady commercial activities is creating a debt in the pockets of the merchants who trade with real quality products that are loosing value due to inflation and unregulated capitalism of greed.

Money is a study property of the economic sciences. Money can exist in material or immaterial form. This form of the money was earlier widespread and to find in all cultures and epochs.

The bad money edges out the good one. Under free competition, however, "good money“ can put through angesich towards „to bad money“.

Paper money originated in the 11th century in China as a deputy for coin money. In Europe paper money was introduced only much later; thus the first expenditure of paper money took place in 1483 in Spain. The trust in paper money was based originally on the fact that it could be exchanged by each any time in Kurantmünzen. The expenditure of the today’s eurosystem is bound by contrast to no cover regulations.

Electronic money is a relatively new manifestation of the book money. The expenditure of money to the population of a currency space is called monetary creation. The once deposited cash is never again pulled back by the bank customers practically to the full extent because cashless figures are more advantageous.

Because the recreated money can serve the credit institutes again as a basis for other monetary creation, there is theoretically no upper border for the amount of the money created by the credit institutes.

The central bank has influence on the money market, while it either influences actively the monetary offer within the scope of a so-called open market politics or has an effect about the interest rate for central bank money indirectly on offer and demand.

Central banks pursue generally a concrete and firm aim with the money supply price increase. This aim is often the price stability. If the money supply grows excessively or increases with steady money supply the orbiting speed of the money, it comes to an imbalance between the available money and the goods which could be paid with the money.

In myths and fairy tales the money also plays a role. The antique legend that the Small-Asian king Midas has wished from the gods, everything what he touches should become gold, and, therefore, he threatened to starve and to died of thirst, is probably an echo of the fact that coin money has been stamped historically first in Lyda.

Azerbaijan’s currency market fell by 10.1% year-on-year to 26.9% of GDP – Azerbaijan Business Center

Department of Treasury Seal
currency market

Image by woodleywonderworks
The United States Treasury Seal is the official symbol of the United States Department of the Treasury. It actually predates the department, having originated with the Board of Treasury during the period of the Articles of Confederation. It is used on all U.S. paper currency, and (like other departmental seals) on official Treasury documents. The seal includes a chevron with thirteen stars, representing the original thirteen states. Above the chevron is a balance, representing justice. The key below the chevron represents authority and trust.

The phrase THE DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY is around the rim, and 1789 (the year the department was established) is at the bottom. This inscription is in a Cheltanham Bold font. In 1778, the Second Continental Congress named John Witherspoon, Gouverneur Morris and Richard Henry Lee to design seals for the Treasury and the Navy. The committee reported on a design for the Navy the following year, but there is no record of a report about a seal for the Treasury.

The actual creator of the seal was probably Francis Hopkinson, who was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and also contributed to the design of the Great Seal of the United States. He is known to have later submitted bills to the Congress in 1780 seeking payment for his design of flags, currency, and several seals, including one for the Board of Treasury. Although it is not certain that Hopkinson was the designer, the Seal is similar to others he designed. The earliest known usage of the seal was in 1782. When the United States Government was established in 1789, the new Department of the Treasury continued to use the existing seal.

In addition to the elements still found on the current seal, the original featured more ornamentation and the Latin inscription THESAUR. AMER. SEPTENT. SIGIL. around the rim. The inscription is an abbreviation for the phrase Thesauri Americae Septentrionalis Sigillum, which translates to "The Seal of the Treasury of North America".[5] The reason for the original wording that embraced all of North America is unknown, although interestingly the first national bank—chartered in 1781 to help solidify the nation’s finances—was named the Bank of North America. After nearly 200 years, Treasury Secretary Henry H. Fowler approved a new, simplified version of the seal on January 29, 1968. The Latin inscription was replaced by the English THE DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY, and 1789 was added at the bottom.

Fresh tomatoes in Paris, 1976
currency market

Image by Ed Yourdon
Paris produce market, Aug 1976 – 18

Note: this photograph was published in an Oct 7, 2008 blog posting entitled " The 2008 economic crisis explained." It was also published in an undated blog called Fruitsticker , which I found on Aug 14, 2009. And it was published in a Jul 16, 2010 Financial News blog titled " Indian Currency Exchange Market – Dollar and Yen Rising Up As Indian Rupee and Euro Fall Flat." And it was published in an Oct 28, 2010 blog titled "Making your number."

Moving into 2011, the photo was published as an illustration in an undated (late Apr 2011) "Fruitsticker #6969" blog titled "#3016: Pears, Concorde." I know, these are tomatoes, not pears — but I’m just reporting what got published.

The photo was also published in an Aug 19, 2011 blog titled "Cool Article Marketing Images."

Moving into 2012, the photo was published in a Jan 30, 2012 blog titled "Indian CCTV Market Analysis."

***************************************

In August 1976, Toni and I took a fantastic vacation trip to Europe — starting with a flight on the Concorde to Paris (which was then very new, and now no longer operates at all!), then on to Venice, and then a drive through Florence, across the Mediterranean coastline of Monaco, and then up through France to Paris. When we reached Paris, we stayed at the obscenely expensive Ritz Hotel for a couple days before flying home …

I remembered having seen the French fresh produce market on an earlier (1971) trip to France, and decided that I would go take some pictures early in the morning … of which this is roughly one of a dozen. Tomatoes, oranges, potatoes, mushrooms, eggs, milk, sardines, grapes, carrots, cantaloupes, apples, pears, shrimp, clams, peaches, beans, radishes, scallons and lettuce were all on display — piled high, in their own separate bins.

No one picture really captures the overall impact of this cornucopia of colors, smells, and sounds; it’s only when you put a dozen of the pictures side by side that you begin to get a sense of it all. But each bin was artfully arranged; the bunch of dill (or whatever it is) carefully laid at a diagonal angle on the tomatoes in this picture is a good example of the French touch.

By the way, the sign appears to say that a kilo (2.2 lbs) of these tomatoes could be purchased for 2.90 francs. Since all of Europe has now switched to the Euro, I don’t know what this would be in today’s currency. But at the time, I recall that the exchange rate was about 6 francs to the dollar; so this sign would basically indicate that tomatoes were selling for about .25 per pound…
