The Fiat Standard
If you want to understand how the economy works, read the Bitcoin Standard, then the Fiat Standard.
Almost all Americans are completely ignorant about the functioning of our economy. If you are concerned about your financial future, you need to educate yourself about the alternative to dollar inflation. Having read numerous books and articles about bitcoin, I find these two volumes of Saifedean Ammous’ work are the most comprehensive. Reading them sequentially will peel away the mystery and you will see clearly what has been happening before our eyes and behind the scenes for several hundred years until the present day. Then you will be able to separate yourself from the crowd and make decisions that will most effectively protect and enhance the life of you and your progeny. If only for their sake, please don’t pass this opportunity by.
