A World Without Money

I got some thinking going on and I was thinking how a world of today would be without paper money. Paper money itself causes so many problems and evils in the world. It makes people do things they normally wouldnt do when put in a situation with money. Its kinda hard to imagine how a world would have to be run. Its not like money is needed to really get something because anything is available with the right equipment and skill. I lost my thought but I know its possible it just has to be mapped out. I wanna hear some opinions. It would make a good book also to write about a fictional world or country that didnt use money.

Money is the best system in my opinion. If you get rid of money it would just end up leading to a barter system and eventually, most likely, back to money. That's not really what you asked though so I'll think but I don't get how the world could function without a form of currency.

It does work but honestly so many things have changed in the years so why not how we buy things or earn money. There has got to be a way to get rid of the paper and not have people be able to steal what you have earned and whatnot.

A world without paper money?

Basically you would have to use specie (hard money such as gold, silver, etc.). If we did not use paper money we would have come up with something else besides just using hard money. President Andrew Jackson tried to circulate specie again and end banks in early America but it did not work out. If it did work out though, the world would be much more complex and would be horrible.
