  1. I'm interested in the monetary system, but there seems to be a load of sketchy information around, so it's hard to know what to believe. I've watched Zeitgeist 1+2 and Money is Debt cartoons, but people have warned me off these sources. For a more rigorous perspective I got hold of a copy of Macroeconomics by Mankiw, which does have a chapter on Fiat Money and Inflation, and explains its existence as being for convenience, and for Seigniorage. Also that inflation helps labor markets. Obviously it doesn't go into theories about the origin of the Fed, or Rothchild/Illuminati type stuff, or central banks enslaving humanity, so how far can this really be believed?

  4. The Asian indexes made their lowest lows in Nov, and made a higher low in March. I don't know if there was a short selling ban in Asian countries but if there wern't it would be nice evidence.
