Fifty Shades Of Grey…Markets

No no no, I get it really. I understand completely, ladies (et les hommes naturellement - but I address le dames en ce moment s'il vous plaît). The curiosity. The mystery. The excitement and adventure of the unknown, the untried, the unexperienced. Your do not know what will happen, but you must take a chance, [...]

Buckle Your Seatbelt, Dorothy

We should all be thankful that an Italian from the Lake Como region with the cool name of Alessandro Volta invented the battery, because if it was a German we'd be asking our electrician to install a 220 Stromspannug circuit for the washing machine. The battery was an amazing discovery, so humanity obviously decided there [...]

The Enlightened Take Things Lightly

Yesterday I received an Anonymous text message from a 1-976 number that just said "You have a message from Alfred Jarry on 4chan/b/." Needless to say I was shocked, as I had not heard that name for almost a year, and after what happened at last year's AgoraFest I hoped I would never hear that [...]

Free Your Money

In a world filled with central banks and fiat currencies it can be hard to find ways to free yourself from the perils of monetary debt enslavement. Controlled interest rates limit our ability to invest. Legal tender laws restrict our choices in mediums of exchange. Monetary inflation destroys our savings and capital gains taxes punishes [...]
