Money has been around a long time; and money is a common subject, but I did not expect to be studying money in my English 101 class. Imagine learning English in a math class. Somehow, it all worked out in the end.
What is life without money? That is the biggest question of this generation today. Money has the biggest impression on our lives and the people surrounding us, it also can be the root of our success or the core of our problem.
This Semester has been an interesting experience for me. Overall, I have learned the value of having a lot of money versus not having enough.

“Paying living kidney donors $10,000 to give up their organs would save money over the current system based solely on altruism — even if it only boosts donations by a conservative 5 percent”. This also with help lower the cost for dialysis. “They determined that paying living kidney donors $10,000 apiece would save about $340 per patient, compared with the ongoing costs of dialysis, and would also provide a modest boost of .11 in quality-adjusted life years, or QALY scores, a measure of the quality and length of life”.
