Born in debt

Sad day today: it was announced that the
great science fiction and political writer
Stanislav Lem died. It was also announced
that out of the 25 billion dollars invested
in clean water only 1 per cent went to
sub-Saharan Africa! Finally the US debt
"clock" is running out of digits as the
government debt apporaches 9 trillion dollars.
This corresponds to about 90,000 dollars
per US family! Every child is born in debt!!!!

That's the bad news...

Here's the good news...

That's not real money; that's Federal Reserve Notes, and unsound, unbacked funny money system, based upon debt itself (and your willingness to believe that you really "owe" it.

We can pay 'em back with IOUs!

Karezza, thanks for the information. Of course, I know this
is funny money but the problem with the system is real.

nope. unfortunately not. actually i could not get any Lem books in SA. i read solaris while in cambridge for a year. it was one of the first books i looked for in cambridge library, as its reputation had proceeded it. (i think i've mentioned before that books are a luxury here and often hard to source anything beyond bestsellers (dean R koontz, danielle steele, etc) and booker prize winners... that's why whenever i have gone to the uk, i come back loaded up with books. (if you buy from amazon, you pay the price of the book in import duty.)

Free: I am sorry to hear that. In the US there are many bookstores
but few have the most interesting books - they are not very popular
anyway. Still anytime I go to a bookstore I end up spending a small
fortune simply because I like it!

Last I knew, there was no statute of limitations on fraud.
