what is the value of money?

anyone out there who still believes in fiat money and the ability of 'our' elites and their small dirty politicians to fix the current debt + paper money mess?

year of the dragon => year of the snake => gold standard is back :-)

you also do not think this paper money orgy could go much longer, do you? napoleon III neither does, he still sticks to his era 1854 :-)

friends, i've already written a lot about money and uploaded few nice pictures how money developed / changed as the times went on, even the relationship between money and happiness have been addressed by myself before (e.g. here), but you know what? there is one special reason i write this blog post today: the last week was a real blood bath for gold / silver bugs at the wall street, you know? so sad ;-(((

ok, let's sum up: the most valuable things on earth like health, happiness, freedom, love, home, family, joy, intact nature, etc we cant buy with money. of course, we can buy a doctor, sex, a house ... but this really important stuff ... hmmmmm ... well, i will better go to bed now and try to think about this kind of stuff later on ;-)

let's finish this blog post with few old, old, old quotes by voltaire, the french writer born november 21, 1694:
source: wikipedia
  • don't think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money
  • when it's a question of money, everybody is of the same religion
  • paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value - zero
  • in general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one class of citizens to give to another

voltaire spoke not only about money, my dears
  • history in general is a collection of crimes, follies, and misfortunes among which we have now and then met with a few virtues and some happy times 
  • history is filled with the sound of silken slippers going downstairs and wooden shoes coming up  
  • history supplies little beyond a list of those who have accommodated themselves with the property of others 
  • it is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets => what about the north atlantic terror organisation (NATO) and its crimes in iraq, afghanistan, libya, syria, ... ?
what about fair precious metal currencies? or any other fair currencies (e.g. backed by working hours or any other model based on work provided today and 'conserved' for a use later)? or what about a needs-based-economy completeley without money as the society provides food, clothes, roof above the head and so on for everyone but no one accumulates money ('wealth') in huge scale?

go gold bugs go and let's crash the powers of the fraudulent financial-military complex :-)
