Laurance Labadie, “Lettera a Mother Earth”
Di Eric Fleischmann. Originale pubblicato il 17 gennaio 2022 con il titolo Laurance Labadie’s “Letter to Mother Earth”. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Lettera a Mother Earth Credo che il tempo-lavoro come misura standard dell’unità monetaria sia un errore destinato al fallimento pratico. Faccio qualche domanda e qualche osservazione. Quale lavoro dovrebbe essere preso come standard,…

De Eric Fleischmann. Artículo original: Laurance Labadie’s “Money and Your Freedom” 8 de enero de 2022. Traducción al español de Camila Figueroa.

Laurance Labadie’s “Letter to Mother Earth”
Letter to Mother Earth Believing that the attempt to make labor-time a standard for a monetary unit a fallacy and bound to fail in practice, I submit a few questions and observations. Whose labor is to be used as a standard, the efficient or the inefficient man’s? Take any product you may, say shoes. John…
Laurance Labadie’s “Money and Your Freedom”
Money and Your Freedom Dear Ron and Laura: Don has been East for a while and dropped in last night. Among other things he brought me up to date on your thinking and plants. I knew that my blast, when I was out to see you, would upset you. But I thought [it] worth while…
Hour Exchange: Spending Time in Portland (Maine)
Since 1971, when its convertibility into any precious metal was suspended, the US dollar has been a de facto fiat currency. Meaning, in this case, that its value is only maintained by government regulation. But what if money was based on something else? Like time. Well guess what? That project has been ongoing since at least…
Mediazione e Propagazione Memetica: Strumenti dell’economia Diffusa
Di Siddharth Sthalekar. Originale: Memetic Propagation and Mediation: Tools for the Distributed Economy, 6 luglio 2020. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. L’ordine di stare a casa imposto durante la pandemia mi è tristemente famigliare. Mi ricorda il mese di coprifuoco durante le rivolte di Bombay, quando avevo undici anni. La vita comunitaria dominava la nostra società…
Memetic Propagation and Mediation: Tools for the Distributed Economy
There’s an eerie familiarity to the stay-at-home orders issued during COVID-19. I can’t help but relate this to my experience as an 11 year old during the month-long curfew after the communal riots of Bombay.  Growing up in India, communal life dominated our lives. While the state functioned along the lines of rigid, monopolistic, soviet-socialist…

Knapp‘s “Future Of Bitcoin “In Doubt?” I Doubt It.” read by James Tuttle and edited by Nick Ford. “The only entities and organizations with anything to fear from Bitcoin and its offspring are governments (which rely on the ability to tax) and the political class (including pseudo-”private” parasites who make their livings sucking…
Il Futuro di Bitcoin “in Dubbio”? Ne Dubito.
Un articolo sincero sul collasso di Mt. Gox, il mercato dei cambi di Bitcoin, suonerebbe più o meno così: “Ehi! Il mercato dei cambi più importante di Bitcoin è scomparso nel nulla… e invece di collassare, i Bitcoin ancora si vendono a 500 dollari! Una moneta robusta, con grandi capacità di ripresa! Un successo! Grande!…
O futuro do Bitcoin é “incerto”? Eu duvido
Uma cobertura jornalística mais razoável do colapso do Mt.Gox, um dos maiores mercados de Bitcoin, seria mais ou menos assim: “Uau! Um dos maiores mercados de Bitcoin da internet acaba de desaparecer e, em vez de entrar em colapso, o Bitcoin ainda é comercializado por cerca de US$ 500! Que moeda robusta e resistente! Que…
Future Of Bitcoin “In Doubt?” I Doubt It.
Sane news coverage of Bitcoin exchange Mt.Gox‘s collapse would look something like this: “Wow! The Internet’s largest Bitcoin exchange just vanished into thin air … and instead of collapsing, Bitcoin is still trading at about $500! What a robust, resilient currency! What a success story! Wow! Wow!” Sanity in news coverage? Well, not so much….
