These are the two things you need to know about the monetary system and they apply to pretty much every currency in the world, including the euro.

Money = A Store of Value (like gold)

USD (no store of value) = Currency

Currency = Debt

Wealth = Your Time (and Freedom)

I’m sure that’s what OP meant, but I’d like to point out that the US Dollar (or any fiat currency) is a currency and not money.

So, you’ve been deceived even more than OP was pointing out. ;)

Diverse societies flourished in Africa and the Americas for thousands of years before Europeans ‘colonized’ them. 
In this hemisphere, there were hundreds of indigenous nations, each with its own spirituality, language, system of government, and land base. In Africa, societies ranged from complex kingdoms to hunter-gatherer communities, with many tribal, religious, and linguistic differences.
But the peoples of these continents had many things in common. Many considered themselves stewards of their ancestral homelands. African and Native groups also held similar ideas about animal spirits, the guiding presence of ancestors, oral traditions, a living world, and extended family relationships.
