  1. @strypey The government only issues and accepts cash or central bank (RBA/RBNZ) credits. When we pay tax our private sector bank credits (the bank's liabilities) are marked down, as are the bank's central bank assets ("reserves").

  2. # 1984, before Phil or Terry joined, and before Andrew was allowed to sit down. Shane isn't forgetting the lyrics; you can't say "bastard" or "bollocks" on the telly in 1984, but you can say "poofs". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4j5d3IfmWA

  4. @strypey Accepting taxes in # would be insane. It would mean surrendering the ability to use the monetary system to achieve public policy objectives. It'd be like joining a monetary union in the absence of political union. Who would do that? Oh, wait…

  5. @strypey Yep. I've a lot of time for # and was pleased he arrived at the # / # position of Mosler (http://ur1.ca/qoo52), Kelton (http://ur1.ca/qoo53), Mitchell (http://ur1.ca/qoo55) et al.

  6. @strypey Money is _used_ in exchange, & also as a store of wealth, but neither is what money _is_. Money is an accounting credit. It's useful to hold & accepted in payment because it has a killer app - eg. the ability to settle taxes. #, at any price, is not money. #

  10. @tregeagle As I've said, # is an unacknowledged reboot of the Tomorrow People. They live in #, yet nobody has five cars on the front lawn; no negotiations about who's picking who up when; everybody gets about effortlessly. They all have jaunt belts!

  11. @tregeagle The RSL is a bit more Tralfamadorian. The place you go to get unstuck in time.

  12. @tregeagle I'd be all right if Ecuador hadn't closed its # embassy. "Not a sovereign state" my arse. We've more coffee shops than half of eastern Europe put together!

  13. @strypey Don't feed the trolls. But yeah, Britain had to impose tariffs on Indian textiles to make domestic mechanised production commercially viable. Britain industrialised because it could force India to deindustrialise. http://ur1.ca/qnu31

  14. @tregeagle We offer the full range of beverage-making facilities for the weary traveler here at Greyhound Guantanamo. Never mind the whimpering and howling; that's mainly me.

  16. @luke Hate the bloody things. In dial-up days I had an old 286 under a desk as modem/router. Kept running out of disk space, though. #'s packages.tgz file was larger than the software running on it.

  17. @tregeagle Of course. My door is always open. That's why we have so many flies. It's hell in here, I tell you!

  20. Never try to play "worst job I ever had" against Sean Spicer. You can measure his hair loss in hourly increments. I hear he drinks only Mylanta and brandy. http://edition.cnn.com/2017/03/13/politics/sean-spicer-donald-trump-wiretapping/
