The Chinese are having to do what the Western nations have been doing for the past seven years to keep its economy moving forward.

Lots of money is being thrown at so called 'Public works'.

The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin was pretty entertaining.

Presented the facts but with a largely positive spin.

Without the Hollywood glamour shots (and the excessive makeup) Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence look pretty bad.

It's hard for me to understand how we can fuck it up this badly for ourselves here in the united states. We have 300 million people in a gigantic country with good capabilities/minerals/strategic position.

People here could potentially become net producers for society and sustain themselves endlessly.

Even with climate change there will still be places suitable for agriculture. We have deserts and other places for all the wind power and solar. There is plenty of water (if we manage it correctly instead of spilling the majority of it onto grass and also evaporating it in the air in the process, (also spilling millions of gallons of it because someone pissed in it)).

We have huge forests, more good land than we know what to do with.


Perhaps we've left the corporations screw us over with no limit. The rich could be dethroned very easily, all we have to do is replace their stuff with our stuff. A new renaissance with 3-d printing coupled with ingenuity and knowledge to create working machines to replace anything. Where we choose wisely the corporations we deal with. Boycotting products that are created unethically and places that pay people bellow a minimum wage out of existence.

I see a lot of action taking place even now, but I don't know what to make of it. BTC is a step forward.

It's easy to realise why things have been so screwed up when you see how much bad information people are force fed.

There is too much focus on compliance and not enough on innovation which leads to the mess we have.

If there was a time to 'dethrone the rich' it should have come six years ago. Sadly 'Occupy Wall St.' was a joke, from the beginning. The people involved had been fed such a hearty diet of obedience that they did not know how to rebel in the face of oppression and mistreatment.

Why am I not surprised to see such poor culinary preferences...

Is it any good?

I haven't seen any reviews on it.
148  Economy / Economics / Will bitcoin survive the impending financial crash? on: October 11, 2014, 10:23:02 PM
Sometime in the next few years the economy will crash (again).

The same mistakes made during the housing crisis are being made again - this time with so called 'bail out money'.

Is bitcoin likely to survive such a crash?

Will it fall in value and then rebound or will it go the way of the dinosaur?

Or will another cryptocurrency emerge from the ashes, a stronger, more viable (and stable) itiration?
149  Economy / Economics / Re: Is the US economy going up or down? on: October 11, 2014, 10:18:38 PM
The banks inflated the economy with funny money last time around.

This time it's the Federal money that has inflated the economy.

Sit back and wait for the crash because it's coming.

Another indicator would be real wages (private sector especially) - which haven't risen.

That would be a real sign of a growing economy.

who would ever have thought capitalist communists.


No worse than Western nations that constantly preach 'free trade' yet subsidize' exports, bail out banks and other failing industries with tax revenue and impose strict tariffs on imports.

Thanks RocketSingh,

I'm curious to read how they recovered that much and also what happened to the remaining bitcoins.
155  Other / Beginners & Help / Are there any stories of people recovering stolen/lost bitcoins? on: October 10, 2014, 11:27:12 AM
I've seen a number of sad tales on bitcoin users who have had bitcoins stolen.

But are there any tales of users recovering those bitcoins?

Are there any tactics that can be utilized to recover stolen/lost bitcoins?

Thanks.

3D print some weaponry and go to war.

It's the only way.

Fiat currency is backed by the AR15 and drones.

China and Russia will be best economy in the world

On what grounds do you believe Russia will go on to become one of the  world's biggest economies?
160  Other / Politics & Society / Re: China Just Overtook The US As The World's Largest Economy on: October 08, 2014, 02:15:30 PM
It is because China has more than 1 billion people compared to America. Eventhough China has biggest economy it still needs big improvement to near American standards of living.

American living standards are dropping as well so it's only a matter of time before America's per capita income levels are overtaken by China.

(Assuming China can follow Japan's lead and begin heavily investing in her citizens...)
