The Bitcoin Standard
Understanding of economics everyone should have!
Beyond “yet another Bitcoin book”, about half of this one is an amazing lecture on general economics, the history of money, its purpose, and the impact of the use of different types of money in different societies, the basic understanding I believe everybody should be taught in school.
He then proceeds to construct the thesis that Bitcoin has all the characteristics of “Sound Money”, more than anything ever used as money so far (divisibility, transportability and ability to hold value through time, not prone to sudden appreciation/depreciation through intervention), which he does in a brilliant way.
Towards the latter part, he goes through the technicalities of Bitcoin just enough to make it easy to grasp for the non-technical readers, while keeping it quite captivating for the technical ones (me).
It’s certainly the best content on Bitcoin (and probably on general economics, for that matter) I’ve ever had access to, and it made me even more excited about Bitcoin. I highly recommend it!
