Collateralized “Death” Obligations?

Both JP Mor­gan Chase and Deutsche Bank are, or have been the focal points of ongo­ing inves­ti­ga­tions into their oper­a­tions. Now, two execs, one for­mer and one active, have alleged­ly com­mit­ted sui­cide. The mor­tal­i­ty rate among Lon­don based bank­ing exec­u­tives has been par­tic­u­lar­ly high in recent years. We won­der if the high mor­tal­i­ty rate, the ongo­ing cap­i­tal trou­bles and legal inves­ti­ga­tions plagu­ing the firms may be relat­ed to these deaths. Are we look­ing at col­lat­er­al­ized “death” oblig­a­tions?


FTR #760 Bit[coin]burg–The Rebels Without a Clue

In this pro­gram, we exam­ine a clan­des­tine, online cur­ren­cy called bit­coin. Bit­coin has been hatched from the same lib­er­tar­i­an, Lud­wig von Mis­es milieu to which Eddie “get rid of social secu­ri­ty, bring back the gold stan­dard” Snow­den adheres. Although the cur­ren­cy has usu­al­ly been attrib­uted to one Satoshi Nako­mo­to, an arti­cle in Fastcompany.com hypoth­e­sizes that the actu­al devel­op­ers of bit­coin were Charles Bry, Neal J. King (who offi­cial­ly denies any involve­ment) and Vladimir Oks­man. All three work for a Ger­man firm called Lan­tiq, evolved from Siemens A.G. Ger­many is the only nation that rec­og­nizes bit­coin.


Bit[coin]burg II

“Tech­no-lib­er­tar­i­ans” view bit­coin as a pos­si­ble alter­na­tive to the dol­lar as a reserve cur­ren­cy, man­i­fest­ing an anti-gov­ern­ment ori­en­ta­tion. It has been sub­ject to all of the same ills as reg­u­lar cur­ren­cies. Lib­er­tar­i­an-fas­cist Peter Thiel is a backer of bit­coin.
