50 Money-Related Innovations

— April 1, 2009 — Top Lists
Like the famous ABBA song says, "Money, money, money, it’s a rich man’s game." We all need money, want money, desire money, and try to save money. Take a look at this money-inspired cluster including money clips made from bills, throwing money from planes, billboards made of money, drugged money and piggy banks with panache.

Implications - Money is a lot of things to a lot of different people; however, for everyone, money is necessary to life in a modern-day society. Thus, money has become somewhat of an obsession for some, especially consumers who are fascinated with prestige. Though they are simple pieces of paper, money represents hard work and success to consumers.
