Noob question: Is all this typecasting normal?

I've done a good bit of Perl, but I'm new to Python.
I find myself doing a lot of typecasting (or whatever this thing I'm
about to show you is called), and I'm wondering if it's normal, or if
I'm missing an important idiom.
bet = raw_input("Enter your bet")
if int(bet) == 0:
# respond to a zero bet
Or later, I'll have an integer, and I end up doing something like
print "You still have $" + str(money) + " remaining"
All the time, I'm going int(this) and str(that). Am I supposed to?
