Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a higher transaction fee.

This is the guy who admired Hugo Chavez’ dictatorship.  And said a few years before Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac failed that they would NEVER FAIL.

He is a fool who loves dictators and will excuse them by any means necessary including lying.  And he may be an idiot who got promoted because he was a statist toady.   Whatever he says, the opposing is probably true.

The fact that he teaches at Columbia shows how low their standards are.

Here is a good summary:
