Why Gold Would Be Useless In an Economic Apocalypse

Since November, financial advisor David Marotta has been publishing a series of blog posts on how to manage your money in the event of a financial apocalypse—as in a world of hyperinflation, governmental collapse, and anarachic mobs. You know, the standard stuff of a doomsday prepper’s fever dreams. While Marotta admits he has some fears about the direction of the country (the man’s not an Obamacare fan, to say the least) most of it seems to be fairly tongue-in-cheek material aimed at talking potential clients down from investing in some of the crazy, survivalist scams advertised on conservative talk radio. (Sadly, The Washington Examiner seems to have missed the humor). 
And the first scam on his agenda? Plowing all your money into gold, of course.

철도노조 파업, 민주노총 불법진입, 이후 있을 총파업 결의 등을 보면서 대체 국제 개발 NGO는 한국 사회 내에서 어디쯤에 위치하고 있는 것인가 하는 생각을 해보게 되었다. 국제 개발 NGO의 위치는 매우 애매하다. 일단 NGO(따지고보면 노조도 NGO지만 여기서는 개발 NGO 등으로 국한)는 비정치적이어야 하며, ‘봉사’ 단체이므로 노동 문제와는 별 연관이 없다는 기반이 깔려있는 듯 하다. 또한 대부분 국외에서 활동하기 때문에 국내 문제에 개입하는 것은 올바르지 못하다는 생각도 있다. 국제 문제에서는 지역 내 정책적 변화가…

Truly Beautiful. If you can’t see the elegance of this, I only wish you could. It ties together the imaginary number, the exponential, pi, 1 and 0. The imaginary number is derived out of necessity in algebra. The exponential number was invented for calculus for logarithmic and exponential functions, pi is essential in tying together geometry, and 1 and 0 are……well, everything. This equation ties together algebra, calculus, geometry, and basic numerology. And it was DISCOVERED. Not invented. That should say something, about the nature of numbers and math to who we are. Math has an unreasonable amount of utility in this universe, especially for something that we essentially INVENTED out of our own heads.
