Thought of the week from Marty Bent:
Solid first principles thinking is sorely lacking in today's world and it has made us worse off. Central banking is a prime example of this. Today's bankers do not understand money from first princinples.
Thought of the week from Matt Odell:
"The non-financial costs of being surveilled reach to the very core of our humanity. Freedom of thought, expression, and action are key to unlocking each person’s unique potential to contribute to society. Untargeted government surveillance programs, even well-intentioned ones, threaten that freedom."
"Given their expressive value, untargeted surveillance of financial transactions raises the same types of civil liberty concerns as other mass surveillance programs."
-- SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce
