Between 9000 A.C. -6000 A.C. the exchange began, that is equivalent to the money which we used at the moment. They began with:
The domestication of the cattle, the culture of harvests specially the vegetal products as cereals and great variety of articles as they could be (lances, shells, necklaces etc.). The cattle is probably the oldest form of all the forms of money. The wine also was usedlike money in many civilizations.

One of the most important steps of all was the one that occurred in period c. 3000 - cs. 2000 A.C. with the creation of the Babylonian bank since they provided safe places for the storage of value objects.

In addition, the tributary registries happened to be of public dominion and, with the objective to reduce the cost of foods; it established that the merchant boats were left extents to pay taxes. Also it degrades slightly the gold mining and silver.
