Is Money Wealth?

According to editor-in-chief Steve Forbes the answer is no.

“Printing a bunch of dollar bills doesn’t in and of itself create wealth. It merely means you can use those pieces of paper to purchase a product that someone else has created. The seller accepts that piece of paper because he or she can use them to buy whatever he or she may want, that is, a product or service someone has created. . . In effect, money is a receipt for the value of goods and services we produce and may wish to sell.” ~Steve Forbes
