The United States has one of the most stable economies in the world due to their strong commitment to freedom and capitalism. The US economy is also growing steadily because of all these factors as well as their innovation that has led them to produce an array of new products and services throughout their history.

According to an article by CNBC, from 2017 up until 2018, stock prices increased by 16%. This number is higher than any other year on record since 1928.

In the modern financial scenario, everyone is at least a little bit concerned with taxes. Some people are more focused on taxes than others, but the fact that some portion of our income is going to go to taxes is something we all need to be aware of.

The first step in preparing for your tax situation is understanding where your money goes. This includes understanding what you earn and how it’s taxed, as well as what you earn and how it’s taxed through investments (stocks, bonds, etc.), savings and spending of your hard-earned money.

The main difference between hard and soft money is the way it is produced. Hard money is created through the printing press, while soft money can be created by a central bank or non-government entity. For example, the Federal Reserve creates US dollars as part of its role as a central bank.

The beginning of hard money was created with precious metals in order to provide stability in an otherwise unstable economy. Gold and silver coins became popular in 13th century China during this time because they were already familiar with the value of these metals. It was not until 15th century that paper currency began to be used for practical purposes instead of purely for decorative purposes like gold and silver coins.
