Money  is a  medium  of  exchange. Wealth  (and  perhaps more  correctly
capital) transfers  from those who  provide the best stewardship  of it.
Those who are  successful at meeting their customers' needs  and also in
employing capital to meet those needs gain  more of it, those who do not
are driven out of the market.

The same is true  of paper money. When you use paper  as money, it wears
two hats;  there is a  demand for  the paper qua  money, and there  is a
demand for  paper in other uses.  In addition, the nominal  value of the
paper money far exceeds the market value.
