User: In 1 or 2 sentences, mention two disadvantages of early forms of money, such as limestone, cattle, and shells.

Weegy: What is money? This initially simple question, posed to us today, will probably garner answers like, cash, credit cards, cheques, travellers' cheques, amongst others. [ As can be seen, money exists in various mediums, and this was also the case in ancient times. Amber, beads, cowries, drums, eggs, feathers, gongs, hoes, ivory, jade, kettles, leather, mats, nails, oxen, pigs, quartz, rice, salt, thimbles, umiacs, vodka, wampum, yarns, and zappozats (decorated axes) were but some of the kinds of goods used as money. Money was essentially needed in barter trade, as a payment for another's goods. The commodities chosen to be used as money were those that were either easy to store, or had some financial value attached to it. Thus, this has led to the misconception that money was invented for trade, but this is actually not the case. The word 'pay' actually comes from the Latin word 'pacare', which means to pay. Its uses in trade is but one of its functions; the primary usage of money is for payment. Payment of goods is thus only a small part of the payments made with money. Payment also comes in many other forms. Compensation is one such usage; dowries were often paid to the bride's family, for causing them to lose their daughter's services upon marriage. Taxes was another important function, in which the ruler would demand a certain amount of a farmer's produce in exchange for settling on his land. Then, tribute to one's ruler, something akin to gifts; those goods given away were also for monetary purposes. Not forgetting religious purposes money in the form of goods were also often required for sacrifices to the god, to show one's faith. The oldest form of money is probably livestock and plant products. Domestication of animals had begun long before civilizations began; so too had farming, and initially, cattle and grain were two very common mediums of exchange. Later, another common type of money developed-cowrie shells. These were used by the Chinese and were so successful that the Chinese pictograph for money came to be depicted by a picture of the cowrie shell. ]
