Lowering births is the unambiguous object of government policy, especially in the developing countries. Increasing populations press on the environment and its resources, take away profits from the capital available for new investment, crowd cities with 5 people for whom jobs are not available, and cause political turmoil. After a period of uncertainty government have become aware that national power and individual welfare are more likely to be atained with fewer people.

Contraceptive measures are feely available  in most countries and are actively promoted in many. Such promotion has little effect when people want large families. However, when the modern ways of live have come into play and people want small families promotion or birt control speeds the decline of the birth rate. Typically, the better off take up family limitation first. Governmental sponsorship of birth control and foreign aid makes contraceptives available to the poor. This apparently helps to spread the practice of family limitation among ever wider strata  of the population. Recent surveys in Colombia, Indonesia and other places with active programs point to a more rapid decline in birthrates than had previously been though possible.

In early societies, money was unknown and man relied on a simple system of exchange. Perhaps a ggod hunter had more animal skins than he could use. His neighbour, a good fisherman, might have too many fish but needed furs to protect his children from the cold. Both soon realized that their problems could be easily solwed by exchanging what they did not need, their surplus, for what they did need.

This method of exchanging something that is not needed for something that is needed is called barter. The word comes from the Italian "barattare" and the French "Barater" which mean "to trade"

Barter was an important menas of exchange when the needs of promitive man were mostly for clothing, food, and shelter. But the system had many problems. For example, a  weaver who wanted to exchange his cloth for a good catch of fish might not be able tofind a fisherman who needed cloth. And the farmer with too much corn might not be able to find a hunter with too many deer. when labour and services became more specialized in growing societies, barter no longer satisfied the demands of payment. A new system of exchange had to be found.

As mand developed, he turned to many different things in his search for a convenient medium of exchange, or money. One of the earliest forms of money was cattle. The richest man was the one who owned the most livestock. His cattle were called "capitale" and from that latin word we get our word capital meaning wealth.

That oil has helped to shape the world is not an exaggeration. Indeed the discovery of oil during the last hundred years has changed a great deal of things. And oil product called kerosene has replace firewood in the kitchen of our cities. Motor vehicles using gasoline or diesel oil have put animal drawn carriages into museums. Steamships have lost against motor vehicles. Diesel locomotives have driven steam locomotive off the rails. Jet planes using aviation fuel fly the skies, making remote places reachable in a matter of hours.

That oil is oil indispensible to our everyday lives is not an exaggeration either. Yet few of us ever ask how his important liquid is extracted from the earth and changed into finished products.  in the first place, it is not an easy matter to find an oil reserve. Exploration teams, sent by oil companies, have to go to remote place, and sometimes have to live under harsh conditions, to explore the earth or seabed for oil. Team members study the rocks and the soil, and if there are promising results, the next thing for the oil company to do is to send a drilling team to location. Again this is not a simple matter.

Roads for examples, have to be built first to transport the men and materials to the site. What is worse, the first drilling does not always bring about oil. The drilling team often has to drill up to ten wells before oils found.

The oil comes out from the well is still crude of course. It is  first gathered in field storage tanks through pipelines.
