there is no money...there are not truckloads of $100 bills being delivered to banks.....bookkeeping entries are made on a spread sheet somewhere and EUREKA everything is now O.K. I have purchased and sold many dollars worth of things in my life and have NEVER seen a dollar bill exchanged for anything . You sign here, I sign there, and I buy your ten million dollar business....you have a paper ten million dollars and I owe ten million dollars to someone....the check is in the mail!!!
