know that money is a measurement system of procuring wealth. Which is precisely why you can't pay someone to build the house unless you have some measurement unit system of his labor to compensate him. So you have boards to build the house, are you going to pay him in boards? What if he doesn't want boards? This is why gold and other precious metals are "real money" because they are a measurement of wealth and they are wealth themselves because of a global demand of them.
