There are plenty of ways to show how money motivates people. From being that extreme as the Chinese boy, I can show you the other side of the spectrum. People like you and I. People who work for a living, by not selling their body or even body parts, selling drugs illegally, or doing anything illegal to gain money. When does society ever feel like working? Its rare to hear it from anyone. But then why do people work? Money. Money motivates people because it makes their life easier to live, and also, keeps them healthy. Without money, or any type of value, this world would be chaotic and less advance as it is today. Money will always get people motivated enough to work.

Post3 - Money + Motivation = Good & Bad
Money is just not a motivation anymore. To some people, its a lifestyle. People will do anything for money. Society has people selling their body for money or even items. Recently in China, a boy as sold his kidney on the black market for an ipad2 (http://www.bgr.com/2011/06/02/chinese-boy-sells-kidney-to-buy-an-ipad-2/). To me, this is ridiculous. How does a boy know how to sell any body part to the "black market"? And also, this is a prime example of how money motivates people. He was giving $3,400.00 for his kidney. It does not matter what age the person is, money can, and will, motivate people in ways they would never have thought.
