That's f'ing awesome!

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

And by ninja'd, you mean what exactly?

+1 awesome. Especially like the ending:

Money is trust in the system, be it the earth, the government, or the internet. So our question to you is this: 'who do you trust?'

I think that should become the new meme. We should call all govt-issued paper currency "flat money".

Good video, nice chick.

Ironic the face of Maumar Gaddafi appeared in the video spitting dollars, considering he's the loony bastard that wanted to introduce a gold-backed Gold Dinar to trade for oil with (possibly the real reason for NATO's sudden concern for the liberation of the Libyan people?)

Oh, and I like "flat money" too. Grin

This and other articles on bitcoin remind me of some journalism rule of thumb that I can't quite remember. It's something like this: If someone can respond to the headline with a one-sentence answer and be 90% correct, it's either not newsworthy, you work for a tabloid, or you should be fired.

Good point.  Ill have to remember that rule of thumb!

Some good press on the LRC blog the other day.  He does a good job of refuting some common misconceptions of why Bitcoins aren't money.

I was just about to post this.  Looks like the tides are turning over at LRC.  I guess it takes some time to figure it out. 

How dare this blogger question the claim made by von Muses that money must arise out of an already existing commodity!?

I agree the tides are turning -- we need a Bitcoin PR person to do a podcast with Lew.  The idea of money having to arise out of a commodity is far more tenuous than the idea that money is anything the market wants it to be.  Clearly there are a growing number of people who believe Bitcoins are money and will continue to use it as such.

Edit: On a side note anyone know anyone over at www.zerohedge.com?  A good post by Tyler Durden would go a long way and seems like a natural fit . . .

I don't view the regression theory of von Mises as a claim that money must arise from a commodity. That, IMHO, is a bad interpretation.
I view such theory as an explanation of how money economies started from previous barter economies.

Bitcoin does nothing to invalidate such explanation, nor such theory implies that bitcoin could not exist/work.

The link between the bitcoin money economy and previous barter economies was made the day some people decided to exchange bitcoins for dollars. There's a topic on this forum about it.
