So "crypto-currency" was an abuse of language, or false advertising, or bait-and-switch. Why are libertarians so criminal-minded?
They should call it an Exhibitionist, not a Crypto, currency.
Money, in the form of direct transfer payments to individuals, fixes both problems. Why can't the Fed fund a basic income at zero cost, as it funds banks?
Index everything to inflation as a hedge. But prices shouldn't rise because you are improving the General Welfare with created money. Supply isn't affected, since we have untapped production capacity. Why would prices rise again?
Bilgecoin...the preferred choice of money for murderers!
Let's put some nuclear reactors in your backyard!
But the same troll was likely used about GPS. Fuck cost effective. Banks create 10 times more money than governments. Fund space at zero cost through the Fed because it is a good idea, in the General Welfare. Why would creating money for space exploration cause inflation?
Re your sig: Jobs are not the goal. Make a basic income available to everyone (funded by the Fed, not the taxpayer, at zero cost). Hold challenges, public and private, to stimulate innovation.
Yeah it would be better to just take it on faith. Think of the money you'd save! You're always right, no need to check, deductive logic all the way!
Scientists want to build themselves pyramids as burial tombs?
Why shouldn't the Fed feed individuals loans at zero percent, so we can buy t-bills at 3%, and keep the loans rolling over?
"Should the power companies be FORCED to just eat the fees of hooking up and stabilizing a power source that's only producing cheap power during periods where demand is lowest?"
This is where "market signals" conflict with "the General Welfare". Government should run the power companies in the public interest, without profit motivation. Fund them at zero cost through the Fed, which (also being not profit-motivated) returns interest to the Treasury each year, and can forgive or keep rolling over the loans.
The answer, according to this solar energy MOOC, is a resounding yes: the panels produce much more energy than they took to build.
What about bird kills, though.
And an added bonus, you get to drink polluted water even when far away!
