Hahahaha. That's a nice surprise, Simon. Wasn't expecting that it would actually wake you up. :P
Let's see if it will work again and spark some love...
/me kicks Keynes and Friedman
/me eagerly awaits for the rise of the dead
Not for free, that's for sure. ;0
I had the habit of reading the forum before I started playing, back when it was public. It was very amusing - Ed Lunn jokes - and it had some interesting discussions - euthanasia comes to mind.
But that's only possible because we have some pretty amazing people around here, don't we?
There were/are some economists around, but I could only recall Simon and he knows US' situation much better than I know.
Doublestar was manager in some place, but he became a real estate agent. Last I talked with him he said he had his ass covered three ways... not sure if he meant that literally or figuratively. It would be nice to have inside knowledge of the sector that begun the current financial crisis.
We used to have some lawyers here, but they have left. They would explain how mechanisms are shared in terms of responsibilities.
The people of these professions just have technical knowledge that isn't common knowledge and it greatly concerns the intricate functions of current day society.
Ah, about my post about when the State can no longer be financed... I assumed all the agents to be passive. You can think of it as "willingly accepting fate". Kinda gave an apocalyptic end, no? Yeah... However when things get dark, our agents become pro-active and try to avoid such ends. For instance, this never happened (as far as I know) because it was decided to issue money, which also brings its problems... Most recent case lies in Zimbabwe. But it does serve to explain why there's interference from the State in dark times, such as the move Bush's administration did a few days ago.
