Helicopter Money


This week on Facebook: Sees me return to economics, yet more history and the despair of an old man who — like all old men before me — thinks that the world is going to hell in a handcart. My first instinct was to ignore articles on helicopter money as it being something that I was incapable of having an […]

Funny Money? (SNAFU)


On Thursday 20th November Parliament will debate ‘Money Creation and Society’ (pdf). This is probably the most important economic debate to precede a general election since the Banking Act of 1844 and one which most politicians would like to avoid. While the majority of the public may not know how money is created, the fact […]

Money Creation


The New Economics Foundation (nef) have published a guide to the UK monetary and banking system with the title ‘Where Does Money Come From?’. It contends that there is widespread misunderstanding of how new money is created, which may imply that the only widespread understanding of ‘money’, lies in its purchasing power. Drawing such an […]

Money money money….


My seeming obsession with money relates essentially to those who, like me, are living on a fixed income with limited disposable income or residual income and wealth, knowing that my money is not  ‘secure and sound’ (I refer to money, which most take to be synonymous with cash, a distinction that is increasingly blurred in a debt driven […]

Artificial Intelligence and Fiat Money


Is it bird? Is it a plane? No it’s a bid! introduces algorithmic artificial intelligence (AI) with examples that include some fictional AI robot scenarios and some recent real life occurrences. In researching material for the post, two things stand out. The first is the fictional human to AI-robot interactions, scenarios where humans interact with artificially created intelligence endowed with […]

Other People’s Money


While we may display genuine and heartfelt  compassion for those in need of it, ultimately we all have a compassion fatigue point at which our self interest – be it physical or spiritual – ultimately triumphs. While that may sound like the writing of a consummate cynic, any such ethos is open to interpretation. I find myself becoming […]

Inflationary money – ‘let it be done’ (fiat)


Unlike Owl I always have a problem spelling Tuesday – my shortcomings here saved by a spellchecker and an intuitive notion that something doesn’t look right.  When extraordinarily large valuations are put on artifacts, it simply doesn’t look right, especially when the artifact being purchased appears to be trivial, like a comic book.  But this of […]

Cassandra on the only game in town?


This week on Facebook: I wrote (at some length) about The Money Tree in 2018, in the post I mentioned Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) and its claim that, with the political climate turning against the acceptance of austerity, it is time to reject the hegemony of neoliberalism. It is claimed that MMT economics never “run’s out […]

Cassandra on The Future?


This week on Facebook: I decided to conclude my research into aspects of the internet and especially those involving social media by focusing on State surveillance.

Covid-19 global consequences


This week on Facebook: Perhaps the worst consequence to the global pandemic introduced by Covid-19, is that  having spent all that inflationary money to combat the pandemic it ends not with a bang but with a whimper. The pandemic has produced, for the most part, common political solutions involving inflationary measures to boost their economies. As I remarked […]
