Issue #556: The madness, explained
Bitcoin provides the world with a truly uncorrelated asset that is not a part of the highly interconnected Frankenstein of a financial system that we have haphazardly thrown together since Nixon officially took us off the Gold Standard in the early 1970s.
Issue #555: Again, our KPIs do not reflect reality

Issue #543: The Fat Lady may be taking the stage
The lingering question that sits on the top of my mind as all of this goes down. IF this is the popping of the "everything bubble", is will people continue to put their trust in the politicians, bankers, and economists who obviously did a poor job of creating long-term stability post-2008?

You freaks have heard enough of me expounding on this topic, so I think it would be a good idea to peep this thread from our boy Dan Hedl. In it, Dan elaborates on and describes in finer detail the argument I attempted to make in the issue linked above.
