a question

do we have a number for how much printed money is there in the world measured in Dollars?
what would the figure be like? trillions? quadtrillions? centillions?! can we know that?

It is a lot...
waste of paper, ink... etc
I hope the usage of cards in the ME increase, although it'd a lot of wasted non-recyclable plastic.

how important is it to know?

Tala said...

very important UTP, if money motion was understood and traced, you know how to make and break commerce and you understand why politics are so screwed and you get to realize the new definition of slavery and its projections =)

the problem with money these days is that none of it is cash. It's all numbers, credits, values. You can't see the money you have

Tala said...

there is a shortage of paper cash thats why people and countries are always in debt. this is the exact reason why there are plastic cards, you deal with money that doesn't exist, not even at the bank. you end up owing the bank before cashing your deposit through credit card interest. they want you to owe them.. this is how we bring in money and remain enslaved.

Dad says " من صرف بلا حساب افتقر و هو لا يدري"

money is plain paper and is not worth a tanakeh but the commitment to pay it to someone, and we the common people deal with left over change which is an illusion, we are the office boy that takes it from one place to another..

i just hate the concept that as i start my life, whatever work i do is worth a virtual number that i really dont have. the concept of constant debt. this is SLAVERY!!!!
