The Pros & Cons of Bitcoins
May 18, 2012 by Anthony Migchels

Bitcoin, a privately controlled independent currency, is nothing short of revolutionary. Bitcoin, however, has a major drawback: it does not address the key issue of interest.

Cheap credit is a disaster.  How can Makow possibly not understand this?  Has he been sleeping under a rock?
