4. Read the case study given below and answer the questions given at the end.
Supposing you have to make a payment of Rs 100, you can do so in rupee coins; but it would be cumbersome to pay in nickel or copper coins, because they are heavy to carry and also because t takes much time to count them. The government therefore permits you to make t in rupee notes. What are these rupee notes really? They are a kind of money; right the enough, although they are made of paper instead of metal coins you can use them in just the same way that you use ordinary money. The reason why they are made of paper and used in that, they save the trouble of carrying metal coins of course, paper lighter than metal and they also save using silver and other metals when they are scarce.
What make these mere pieces of paper bare the value of number of rupees that is printed upon them? Why should a piece of paper, with “100” printed on it be worth 20 times as much as a piece of paper with “5” printed on it and also worth a hundred times as much as a silver rupee coin ? The reason is that government guarantees that the piece of paper is worth the amount printed on and promises to pay the amount to anybody who wishes to exchange this paper for the rupee coins. Also, if you think about it you can easily realize that crores and crores more of rupees coins would have to be minted, if all paper money were abolished.
Perhaps you may ask, “Then why not have paper money only” why use silver, and nickel and copper at all? The answer is – Because the money mush as we already said be something so useful that everybody wants. Also because the metals are the best form of money and thirdly because it would be impossible to print just the right amount of paper money that would keep prices at their proper natural level. If any government prints too much paper money, then prices go up at once. The supply of money is increased and therefore its valued (in food, clothes, books, houses and everything else) goes down
You may think at first that is queer to talk of having too much paper money and that money is so nice and useful that you cannot have too much of it. But if you think that I am afraid that you are forgetting that money is only useful for what it will buy. So it is no good at all for having more money if there are no more things to buy with it. The more money there is, the higher will be prices of everything. The same thing happens with rupee- coins as with paper money. But it is not likely to happen for this reason; it is very easy to print a great deal of paper money but not at all easy to increase the amount of rupee-coins. Silver has to be dig out of mines and very difficult to get so the amount there is if it keeps very steady and changes very little .In fact that is one of the chief reasons why it was chosen to make coins of.
Q1. Why does the Government allow payment to be made in paper notes?
Q2: What is more valuable, to have 100 rupee-coins in Silver or a Rs.100 note in paper?
Q3: If metal is so cumbersome why should we not have only paper money? Why should we not print as much of it possible?
Q4: Why does the Government print only a certain number of paper notes, and not as many it likes arbitrarily?
