Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I thought about that, but I decided the important part is the people, not the currency.  Sometimes, even an inane comment plays a crucial role in the overall thread, balancing the discussion and the point tension.

An essential characteristic of currency is that it must flow, change pockets, be well distributed so that it reaches everyone who makes an effort, no?  Sort of reorganizing the central banks.  I just think that it may encourage posters to be acknowledged and viceversa.

Besides, I will run out of room for all these trillions and ET will have to buy me a house with some land to store them.

The community IS the currency. It's only through our mutual agreement that anything has any "value" in exchange.

As for Central Banks - they're obsolete, along with credit intermediaries aka Banks.

Well it does appear that with a surfeit of bankers and economists in the  vicinity, I'm sure if you give them enough 4's they will shower you with interest.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
