Money shouldn't be an issue, which is the sad thing. It's an illusion. Money itself is worthless, it's only representative of worth.
I don't get the idea of obsessing over money. I don't see the need to have more than my fair share for the work I do and the things I contribute, and I don't see the big whoop about not having any at all.
Because money's an illusion, not having money is hardly a great achievement. All you need in it's stead are the actual resources the money is meant to represent, which is still something of value. Without money, but with resources, you can survive. Without resources you cannot survive. Simple.
This guy has no money, but he must have resources. I mean, if I had my own home, build next to a natural running water supply, with land enough to grow crops to eat, next to a wooded area and a supply of tools and essentials to get me started, I could live without money.
Conversely, you can do it in an urban environment if you can find someone to barter food for services, or somesuch.
Personally, I'll stick to my monetary system. It may be an illusion, but it's much easier than asking to get paid in food for my services and having to work at the utility companies to get my power and water
