and then he had to? invade and rob other nations, because in 1940 Germany would be cooked – central planning always does that – not important if it’s communist or fascist 🙂

It took Hitler 30 months to turn Germany from a lost case to a superpower! What did he do? Kick out the central bankers and print his own money and spent it into circulation on projects beneficial to the 3rd? Reich. The truth about this period of history is never told as it shines a spotlight on our masters who set up the Bank of England the Federal Reserve etc etc. We do not need them and their usury system that creates hyperinflation and then stealing all the real wealth of the people!

and somewhat later, while america was starving in the great gepression, germany decided to use debt free money, like Lincoln did once.
guess what? it worked again.
“Within two years, the unemployment problem had
been solved and the country was back on? its feet. It
had a solid, stable currency, no debt, and no
inflation, at a time when millions of people in the
United States and other Western countries were
still out of work and living on welfare.”

“Democracy got a very bad name…”. And? for a reason, it’s the worst form of government.

so it? was trade and faith that give value to the currency, and NOT DEBT.
US, EU countries, and Japan have so much debt to GDP, yet their currencies are still high. as long as the world does business with each other, then they need the said countries currencies, which helps it hold value. no way in hell US dollar will default, when 7 billion people on earth use the US dollar in some form or manner(oil dollar), the inflation is dispersed among the 7 billion people.

what about silver? i would rather use silver for money and use gold as a storage of wealth, or for larger transactions. i prefer bi-/poly-metalism. gold is easier to control than silver because it is historically less common. So a small? group of individuals could control larger percentages of wealth.

We need a computer program that holds a fixed quantity of digital coins.
A decentralized network of peer to peer coin transfers.
Compatibility within a? network needs to depend on a fixed money supply.
BITCOIN approximates these ideals, and is open source 🙂

jep iddefbbbf nederlands. De ik snap je punt en ben het ook heamelal met je eens. Wat het probleem is, is dat als iemand goud wil kopen moet hij dat in dollars doen, want de commoditiemarkt is helaas’ nog steeds dollar gerelateerd. Dus als iemand goud wil bijvoorbeeld iemand in china ruilt hij zijn yuans om naar dollars en stijgt de vraag naar dollars en dus de waarde. Dus als veel grote landen grondstoffen kopen zal de vraag naar dollars groeien. toch of zit ik er nu naast?
