Trent 1 Alex Trent Chipman Personal Finance 1/17/16 Chapter 1 Concept Check Money is the hidden, driving force in setting financial goals. Both in setting goals for how much money someone wants to make and setting budgets, money is the key factor that ideas, plans, and decisions are based around. Often times, personal desires to be rich and have an abundance of money will drive up financial goals as well. Along with that, financial goals are the things that a person ultimately wants at the end of the day. Planning to build a house or own a nice car are great financial goals to have, but worthless without a source of monetary income. There is a relationship between utility and money. “Utility is something that should be valued along with cost” because utility can make the higher price of two items to be worth the extra money, (Gitman, Joehnk, Billingsley 12b). Utility is not just something that refers to monetary value, but to personal value and feelings, “utility is the satisfaction that someone will receive or feel from something that they buy,” (Gitman… 12b). Believe it or not, utility is actually more influential most of the time than the actual money that will be spent because utility can give the item more purpose and value. Money is merely the form of payment that people use to get the utility, or satisfaction, from goods and items that they desire. Satisfactions should be kept in mind when spending money because satisfactions are what will ultimately influence someone to spend their money. Despite limiting options down because of a budget, one will often end up spending more than the allowed budget because the Trent 2 item will offer much more satisfaction and will be worth the extra dollars in the long run. Satisfaction is really what people want, not money. Trent 3 Work Cited Gitman, Joehnk, and Billingsley. "Chapter 1 Understanding the Financial Planning Process." Personal Financial Planning.
