A recent article in alter.net has brought my attention to the fact that the Fed has been helicoptering in far more money than previously thought - if you take all of the past three years into account.
To the tune of $29 trillion.
So... what is the dollar? If you believe it's anything but a myth, then I've got this bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.
Only problem is that I deal exclusively in magic beans.
The Green Gap
In the Cold War, we feared a Missile Gap was a strategic weakness. Nowadays, we must awaken to the fact that the Green Gap is true strategic weakness: the nations whose economies will thrive in the coming years will not be those with the biggest factories, but those with the most sustainable, efficient, and ecological markets. What we require is a Strategic "Green Reserve" of ecological design to weather the coming changes that both climate and resource scarcity will force on the international economy.
