Friends, countrymen, it's time to explore part 3 of Lyn Alden's book Broken Money.
We've done this before (part 1, part 2) and this should have the same vibe -- I'll stir the drink a bit with some high-level comments inspired by these sections of the book, but you should feel free to comment in whatever way your heart moves you. Seriously, jump in! You may have focused on different things. Your curiosity might have been piqued by something mine wasn't.
Caveat: I am neither a historian of money nor of the hermeneutics of Lyn Alden. I'm just some guy. These are just some thoughts.
Let's do it, @k00b, @carlosfandango, @satscats, @ekzyis, @q, @lawndough, @0fje0, @OsomSala49491, @fred, @BTCMagician, @Undisciplined, @siggy47, @SpaceHodler, @cryptosensei, @scottathan, @Bullen.
And what about you, @mallardshead? I'm particularly interested in your geopolitical takes.
