On the global financial structure's design problem, would it help to have
the Fed replaced by computer, redundant information/communications
networks, and schemes for localized emergency fallback protection (such as,
a decisive percentage of local endangered economies immediately and
transparently switching to transacting with e-gold during a crisis)?
I too believe human nature does not have intrinsic evil, only flaws or
perversions of capacities initially inclined towards goodness, a view put
forth in strong and beautifully touching terms by, for one, the ancient
Chinese Philosopher, Mencius.
