Do Money Grow On Trees? [Solution To Economic Crisis?]

A dream of every person is to get free money without the trouble of hard work. However, does money really grow, and that also on trees?

Well, money does not grow on trees, as money is an artificial product created by humans for the survival of humans in this economic world. Meanwhile, trees are natural objects with life on them, which can be used to make money or attract wealth.

Scroll down to learn how to use plants for money instead of expecting money to grow out of them.

Do Money Grow On Trees?

No. Money does not grow on trees. It is because money will lose its value if it is free.

Free money will be the reason for inflation in the society where people will only grow trees giving money instead of fruit and nuts.

Also, economic downfall will occur in each country. There will be a lack of foliage, and no one will let a single leaf fall on the ground, leading to a great disaster.

Moreover, money is manufactured from printing machines, but trees grow naturally from seeds.

Thus, only your hard work can earn you money. So in a literal sense, money does not grow on trees.

But they successfully deceived people and made them search with a query on whether money really comes from them.
