and services by one
person in return for
goods and services
from another person is
called barter system.

when there was no
under the barter
system; like double
coincidence of wants.
Evolution of Money
People were engaged in barter.
The goods to be exchanged were not
necessarily of the same value.
It was also difficult to store goods,
particularly perishable ones like fish.

value and bearing an official seal appeared

During the Mauryan period copper was also
used to mint coins.

Needs and Wants
Needs are things that we must have in order
to survive - things we truly can’t be without.
Wants, on the other hand, are things that we

necessary for survival.

at all: like air. Many needs and wants,
however, cost money.
You should cater to your needs first, before
you can buy the things you want.
Ask for a bill
A bill offers protection and benefits to both
buyer and seller.
If you don’t have the bill and the item you
have purchased turns out to be faulty, you
lose the right to complain.
Some shopkeepers on their own won’t insist
on giving you a bill as they want to avoid
Every time you make a purchase or make
any payments ask for a bill.

Types of taxes
