MoneyDelusions: We’re going to get this from people who don’t know what money is … and nobody but the money changers seem to know … and they’re liars.
It is easily proven: Money is “an in-process promise to complete a trade over time and space.” It is always, and only, created by traders like you and me. For example, when we promise to buy a house with 360 monthly payments … or a car with 60 monthly payments … we are making a promise spanning time and space. To do this we create a “money obligation” and get it certified by the process … which then monitors it for performance. In most cases it is just an entry in a couple ledgers. One ledger (the money process’) keeps transparent track of the performance on your promise. The other ledger (yours) keeps track of how much performing you have done and have left to do.
In the mean time, this money you created exchanges as the most common object in every simple barter exchange.
Should you fail to meet your performance promise (i.e. DEFAULT), a proper Medium of Exchange (MOE i.e. money) process immediately recovers your DEFAULT with an INTEREST collection (from other irresponsible traders) of like amount. In this way it protects everyone using money to make trades.
The operative relation is: INFLATION = DEFAULT – INTEREST = zero
‘So INTEREST is absolutely “objective”. It’s not dictated by the likes of Sanders or Cortez … or the money changers … or the governments the money changers institute to protect their scam. INTEREST is guaranteed to be zero for responsible traders (non-DEFAULTERS) and adjusted according to a trader’s propensity to DEFAULT (i.e. irresponsibility). Past irresponsibility can be cleared away by simply making up the DEFAULT.
The money itself has no intrinsic value … so precious metals are not money. The money itself is not created from waste … so BitCoins are not money. Money maintains a perfect perpetual supply/demand balance, thus also ruling out precious metals and so-called crypto.
The obvious indicators that you are immersed in a defective MOE process is concepts like “monetary policy”; “stimulation”; “unemployment”; “inflation targets”; “usurious interest”; etc.
