Re: Black swans

Depends on what you mean by "money." What they used to call money (trade goods like gold, salt, or cattle) is not what we call money nowadays.

Perhaps but those monetary systems were commodity based i.e. if the salt, gold, [more]

Re: Black swans

I'm not sure who would win if the banks and governments stop colluding and start fighting.

We need to get a lot wiser very very fast.
