You're Tom, 29, single, and a former full time wageslave. One day, while walking home late at night after a long overtime, a snow avalanche hits you, and you end up in another world. It's like some tribe from Africa, where you're a revered warrior, called J'Amal---but of course you have no idea how to fight. In a short amount of time, you travel back and forth, until you end up in a hospital the next day of the accident. You have no memories of these happenings, but weird events keep happening around you, and sometimes it feels like you're being haunted. You also lost your job, and having no real savings, you start job hunting before you run out of money, while trying to understand where those weird dreams are coming from...

Chapter 2

It's white. Everything is white. You take a few steps left, and right, but everything is the same. Uniform white everywhere. "What is this?" you start thinking when you notice a black dot in the distance.
You take a few steps toward the dot, until you realize it's a girl in the distance. You hesitate for a bit, thinking of what should you do, but it's too late! The girl noticed you, and she turns to face you...

>"Umm, could you please turn around for a while?"
"Yeah sure," you reply and you turn around. You hear some rustling from your back when suddenly,
*BAM*
you received a blow to the back of your head with some kind heavy tool. The whole world goes black, and you lose consciousness in a second.

...

White. Everything is white. You look down--well, your body doesn't exist either. You're just floating in the endless white ocean.
"Again." That's the first word that comes to your mind. You were here before. You have seen this. In that dream. No, not just the dream, when you passed after that fight with that rookie, it was the same endless whiteness. Also, after the snow hit you. Why are you only remembering it now? You tried moving around, but it quickly got out of control and you crashed into the ground, then you woke up in that weird village. Should you do the same? There's no guarantee the same thing will happen now. Do something else? Who knows what will happen in that case.
Move around. See where that takes us. Maybe if we do end up in the village again, we can ... right our wrongs?

You start moving around. At first, you don't notice anything. You continue moving, and slowly the wind starts blowing. You don't know where you're going, you're just going wherever this weirs space takes you. All you feel is the wind, blowing stronger and stronger---it looks like you lost control, again. Finally, you notice a little dot in the distance, which gradually gets larger and larger. It's a huge forest, and some clearing next to it, speeding towards you, you want to slow down, but you can't do anything, it's déjà vu all over again, you're going to crash into the ground...


"Graaaaah!" you wake up to a loud shout.
You jump out of the bed and open the shutter on the window, and you notice that the village is on fire!
Wait, village? You turn around, and look around the empty bedroom, but when you look down, and another unexpected thing pops into your vision---a pair of large, naked boobs.
"Mistress, please release us! I can help you escape!" you hear Todobo's voice from the outside. He and the two other slaves are probably chained to the wall as usual.

Finance and economics go hand-in-hand if you want to seriously discuss either of them, so go wild. If things get political, then invoking rule 3. and 4. (together with rule 0.) should take care of them. That is, if it devolves to shitflinging I will just chuck all those posts here, and then ban anyone who still wants to do that outside of this thread.
>>82
I mean the 2. and 3. rule, 4. is not applicable in that specific case.
Today, for the first time in my life, I bought some shares in a company. It makes me feel somehow accomplished, and I assume it's the feeling of buying something combined with the feeling of not actually wasting my money.
Someone posted a couple real estate webms in the cafe so I decided to stop by.
I just want to say that I hope the housing market does crash. Uncle Sam owes me a VA loan and I don't want to buy a fixer-uper at doubled cost. Hopefully getting a loan doesn't become impossible in the process.

I know several people who made it big by snatching up homes when 2008 happened. It would be in all our interest for a housing crash to happen, but you'd have to worry about others who are thinking the same thing. I know for certain that big investment firms are buying as much property as they can, so there might be more competition than what you'd see back in 2008.

As per the subject, assuming a Christian Populist tsunami this Autumn, do you think that the LDS church would release some of their massive food stores of, for instance, Mormon Deseret baby formula out for general sale in key regions like Blue Colorado or targeted parts of other neighboring states to end the shortages and turn a profit at the same time? Are churches secretly primed to take a key role in preventing NWO bullshit?

I don't know the details, but I somehow doubt that mormons were secretly amassing these very specific products for years, so that they can suddenly release them on the market to bring  down the price. Do they have some sort of a closed economy of their own that can serve tens of millions of people, and yet they just don't use all of that capacity to sell to the general market? Because that sounds implausible to me.

a.k.a How should the rest of the world avoid perpetual economic stagnation Japan is experiencing for 30 years

From what I heard from the local commoners' news sites, it seems that the rising costs of everything coupled with high pay cuts in form of taxes and state-run insurances made most of the population to become misers, halting many kinds of trades. 
Most of the workforce in big cities have to cash out 30% of their salary to pay the two above which leave them with very little (<$150) disposable income every month, and the costs could run higher if they took loans.

However I don't think that alone explains why Japan ended up with a staggering level of public debt, nor explains why people are refusing to settle in countrysides where living costs are cheaper.

Although we should obviously explore the hows, but it's always nice to know the why, and in this case this documentary is essential:
https://yewtu.be/watch?v=p5Ac7ap_MAY
The long story short is that the Japs came up with a system of state-controlled development in Manchuria, where bureaucrats designated various economic goals (e.g. produce lots of steel, or build a railway line between these two cities), and then helped businessmen achieve these goals. After ww2 'mericans let all these bureaucrats get into the government, which meant they actually had more power than they ever did in the 30s and 40s, as all the zaibatsu were broken up, so there was no one to say no to them. They pretty much adapted this Manchurian system to Japan, but a bit more indirectly: the state decided to prop up a specific industry, and the central bank told all the commercial banks to give good loans to companies working in that industry. And this way they propped up their economy industry-by-industry, sector-by-sector. Then a new generation of bankers came to work in the central bank, and they actually believed the education they received in the US, and so they decided to deliberately ruin this system in the 80s by causing that infamous housing bubble. They did such a good job that the Japanese economy

So the common point between US and Japan is that they've experienced economic crisis due to housing bubbles. But how do you even prevent that if house price normally go up in most market? 
Not even the Chinese government with its strong hold on domestic market was willing to let Evergrande and house prices fall by itself.

Those three are quite different beasts. In Japan they deliberately kept giving out cheap mortgages like candy, in order to artificially pump up the price, thus creating the bubble. After all, if all buyers can get cheap loans, then sellers can also demand more money for the same property. After a while prices got to the point where they became genuinely unaffordable, so nobody wanted to buy properties, simply because they could not afford it. And if nobody wants to buy something, then it worths less, and suddenly you had lots and lots of Japs saddled with mortgages for properties that are worth a lot less than when they took out those loans. 

In Shina, the same kind of bubble happened, except that this time it wasn't a deliberate attempt by the central bank to crash the economy with no survivors. As one strelok explained it, the average Chinaman is simply not allowed to buy stocks or bonds or land or anything like that, and the only way to invest his savings is to buy a flat. This means that every Chinaman wants to buy flats no matter what, and that leads to prices rising until not Chinaman can afford a house, and this created the same kind of bubble as the one in Nippon, just for different reasons.

What happened in the US was entirely different. There are certain financial instruments called mortgage-backed securities. The way they work is that banks pool together the monthly payments from lots of mortg

It looks like the map only cares about USA and China, and China while still were a communist country, it was always an outlier, so I can imagine countries actually traded more with USA than China. Also note that the Chinese economy only really took off 20-30 years ago, while USA were mostly stable during this timeframe (image from kikepedia, so take it too with a grain of salt). An USA vs USSR in the 80s and USA vs China now comparison probably would make more sense.
But on the other hand, Romania is like the whitest country on the map, while they were the most (along with Yugoslavia) fuck Moscow, we're doing things our own way country in the bloc, so who knows.

I see, I guess ˝A map that shows if a given country traded more with the USA or the PRC in a given year˝ does not have the same ring to it. 
>An USA vs USSR in the 80s and USA vs China now comparison probably would make more sense.
It seems to be one of those things that are hard to cram on a map, even if you use a fancy interactive one, because to do it properly you would have to include a chart or list that shows all trade partners by percentage for every country, and that is overwhelming enough so that you really could not see the forest from the trees.
wire service he had used for years to pay vendors in Ukraine had suddenly stopped working.

He contacted AmEx for an explanation. A representative told him that the company had suspended service in the country. “I understand Russia, but why Ukraine?” Mr. Nayandin, who is based in Fairfax County, Va., said he told the AmEx rep.

Like many American companies, AmEx suspended operations in Russia and Belarus after Western governments bombarded the two countries with sanctions. But AmEx went a step further by shutting down a service in war-torn Ukraine that businesses use to make cross-border payments.

“In light of the war in Ukraine and the changing sanctions environment, which has made it difficult to provide a reliable customer experience, we have suspended a wire transfer service, FXIP, which is used by a small number of companies to make vendor payments to recipients in Ukraine,” an AmEx spokesperson said in a statement.

AmEx’s better-known card business remains fully functional in Ukraine, the spokesperson said.

Sprawling sanctions meant to cripple Russia’s financial system sometimes trip people and businesses out of their reach, even in Ukraine, the country they were meant to help.

Financial firms often take an overzealous approach to interpreting penalties due to the harsh penalties for violations. The potential extension of sanctions to new targets may also make companies cautious about who they do business with.

“From a business perspective, if the deal size is small, why take the risk? said Robert Clifton Burns, senior counsel at the law firm Crowell & Moring LLP.

I cannot find anything about how this FXIP thing works from a technical perspective, but what makes international wire-transfers somehow complicated is that the national banking systems are not directly connected (hence SWIFT and everything else discussed ITT). The usual solution is that a bank opens an account at a foreign bank, and use that as an ˝access point˝ to the banking system of that country. I suspect AmEx also has at least one bank account in every country where it's available, in order to deal with card payments, and this system piggybacks on that. So instead of using the normal method of sending funds from a bank account in one country to a foreign bank account, they credit the sender's money on the AmEx bank account in the sender's country, and then the once receiving the funds gets them from the AmEx bank account in his country. 

In short, it really has nothing to do with the technological side of things, instead they simply decided that they won't use their Ukrainian bank account to send money to individuals and businesses.

Yes, the second link is wikipedia, but it's still quite interesting how an Austrian coin was became the standard around the Red Sea, Ethiopia, and even Java and other lands too,and that lead to millions of copies of a 18th century coin being minted in the 20th century. But this time it was the Italians who unsuccessfully copied an Austrian coin:
>The MTT came to be used as currency in large parts of Africa and Middle East until after World War II. It was common from North Africa to Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, and down the coast of Tanzania to Mozambique. Its popularity in the Red Sea region was such that merchants would not accept any other type of currency. The Italian government produced a similar designed coin in the hope of replacing the Maria Theresa thaler, but it never gained acceptance.

But wait, there is more in the first link!
>In Brussels, the engraver that produced the dies missed out one of the nine pearls on Maria Theresa’s brooch. It might be an interesting discrepancy to us today, but it was rather an issue at the time. Ten million were made and each was greeted with disapproval from many – it's thought that the Arabs of Yemen were so used to the design of the thaler that they'd reject the coin if they couldn't feel each of the nine pearls with their thumb. London saw a similar hiccup too. Its dies missed out the central feather of the Imperial Eagle that featured on the coin's reverse. Seeing as London's dies had also been used for the thalers struck in both Birmingham and Bombay, these coins also bear the mistake.

I probably expressed it poorly, what I mean to say is that the barrier of entry in modern day IT and coding is very low thabks to simplified and interpreted programming languages, IDEs and prebuilt shit. GOOD and EFFICIENT programming is rare and even moreso with legacy servers, but the basics of coding are the same regardless of the environment, all you need to start is room temperature IQ, some primers on logic and mathematics and good ol stackoverflow.
Nexo Unveils Payment Card Where Users Get to Keep Their Crypto
https://archive.ph/8fvu9
>Nexo has unveiled a crypto-backed payments card that allows users to spend without having to sell their digital assets. The crypto lender is offering the Nexo Card in partnership with Mastercard (MA) and corporate payment services provider DiPocket, giving cardholders access to 92 million merchants worldwide. Nexo claims the card is the first to allow users to spend without selling their digital assets. It is linked to a Nexo crypto-backed credit line, with cardholders' digital assets as collateral. Payment is made through the credit line, which is available in fiat and stablecoins. The card is available across select European markets. Debit and credit cards linked to digital assets are established in the crypto industry, though many users may be put off because of the risk of losing gains in crypto's value. Nexo's card might encourage more frequent use of crypto-backed cards in everyday transactions by alleviating this risk. The card can be linked to Apple Pay and Google Pay.

As someone living in the funnier part of Europe, I've warmed up to the idea of joining the eurozone, because in practice it would mean a lot less inflation and lower interest on loans. The European central bank has a policy of doing absolutely nothing for the most part, so we don't even have to worry about some sinister plot on their part. And if worst comes to worst, we can always just switch back to our own currency, but it would be backed by an economy that could grow stronger over the years due to the aforementioned lower inflation and interest.

A remnant of French colonialism that there a ton of African states that use one of two currencies pegged to the Euro, the West African Franc and the Central African Franc. Originally both of them were pegged to the French Franc, and you need 100 of either to get one a single French Franc. Then in late the 90s it was time to introduce the Euro, and so the franc was pegged to it at 6.55957 to €1. This means to this day 1 Euro is worth 655.957 of either African francs, so 1 eurocent is the equivalent of 6.55957. 

Honestly, this might not be that bad of a deal for them. True, they can't just do whatever they want with these currencies, but they don't have to worry about inflation, and doing nothing is usually the best economic policy.

I can't help you with that. I mean, it's up to you to decide if it's even a good idea to keep your money in that, or if you should get out in the right moment.
>Got plenty of fiat in the bank though.
If they are just sitting there, then you should look up what kind of time deposits and bonds are available. Getting even a little interest can go a long way over the years, and it's a lot better to keep your money in those if you don't need it right now but don't want to risk it with investments. Of course, what kind of time deposits and bonds are available for you is dependent on where you live, so it's something you should look up on your own.
>Just a rentpig.
A home at a good place is a good long term investment, and if you get a good enough loan you can save money even in the short term, if the monthly payment is less than the rent of a similar place. And rent only goes up with every year, but the loan stays the same, so you save ever more money and in the end get your own place for it. Alas, it only works if you know where you want to live, and you already have a job to pay for it.

In general, if you are really poor, you need to examine your spending habits and see where your money goes, and how can you save at least a bit of it. Think of it as lowering the amount of money you need just to exist, so that you can either save up the rest and invest it into yourself, or invest into something that will bring in more money, or waste it on useless bullshit.

To be perfectly honest, I've run out of general advice, because if you handle your finances well then the next step is to increase your revenue. And there is no point in going on about how firm a handshake you should give. It sounds like you are in a good situation overall, the struggle is to make it better somehow.

/animu/ has been requesting a news board in their meta thread and it seems like some anons are upset with anoncafe's /k/ along with /tv/ being used for news. When I asked loleron he responded with a(n understandable) strong no. I believe a news board would be a headache for any site due to its implications, but in the interest of anons repeatedly bringing it up after being shot down, I would like to request a /news/ board I can moderate here on trashchan. If it's a hard no, I fully understand why, and I don't hold that against you. As stated elsewhere, it will be advertised as existing if made.

Yes that's my primary concern and why I'm not pursuing this very hard. Unfortunately it would almost certainly end up with that sort of reputation as a news aggregate board, but trying to police politics would make the place too much work.

Yes.

I'm one of the other anons from the aforementioned threads
While I see where you're coming from with this decision, I'd also like to see some more boards in general on the webring, especially for topics that aren't already being discussed on a specific board. Frankly, it's kind of bothersome that the only few places to talk about current world events is a couple of threads on a gun's and gun'sbrasters board and on an alternative anime board.
As >>24 states I am also fearful of the possibility of attracting /pol/shit or /leftypol/shit, but it's practically part and parcel of dealing with world news. If anything, a moderately populated discussion board is much more defensible from their kind, as the amount of posters that don't fall for niggerpill is significantly higher in places that let them speak more freely.

Speaking of, how is a board that is being held beck by gatekeeping practices supposed to grow in size? I hope I am not coming off as uncouth, I'm just curious about how it can get an userbase by means other than advertising it in the right locations.

>but trying to police politics would make the place too much work.
Also, if you police not enough, anons will be butthurt about why don't you remove that, if you police too much, they will be butthurt about that. Add any kind of /pol/ content, and you just made the problem 1000 times worse. Finding a balance requires a lot of work, if it's possible at all, so if you're not ready for that, it's probably better if we don't have this board.
>I'm more of the "live and let live" sort
I'm too, as long as they're outside and don't bother me. The problem is that they're usually not that kind, so if you let them in, they'll immediately start to force their ideas on you. Also pic related.

The less populated the board, the more defensible is, because /cow/tard attention whores generally ignore them. If you want to do this on a board with more than two anons, you need rock solid moderation to remove any derailing /pol/shit attempts on sight, but at that point you're dangerously in rulecucking waters.

I highly recommend using cloudflare's csam scanning tool to stop illegal images from appearing on your site. It also helps to block proxies as well. I think as an imageboard community we can stop this shit but we need to start taking measures to put an end to it. If you want to step away from your board for awhile don't leave posting open. It will get spammed. Just put it in read only until you come back.

And yes, I'm posting this on all the imageboards I find. No I'm not a bot.
>cloudflare
really nigga?
>cuckflare
I don't think it works on tor, which kinda defeats its purpose on blocking images. (I'm also not sure what false positive and negative rates it has. To be honest, CP is the only annoying thing, I'm not sure what else it would block.) Plus it harasses users with javashit and jewgle captcha. And whenever the ceo has a bad day, he nukes a site. Plus one more party to collect all kinds of data (and they have access to the plaintext). I don't want anything like this until I really need it, and even in that case I'd look for alternatives first.
>It also helps to block proxies as well
This is not cuckchan, proxies have legitimate use cases, and as long as they don't create a huge problem I don't care (and since all the IP addresses are hashed in the DB, I'm not even sure what post comes from a proxy and what not)

Welcome to /finance/, a board dedicated to all subjects financial and economical, both theoretical and practical! 

The rules:
>0. Take it easy!
Not exactly a rule that can be enforced, but it should be included somewhere.
>1. Obey the global rules!
They exist for our common well-being. 
>2. Don't be a nigger!
That is, try to put some effort into your posts, use proper grammar and spelling, and articulate some actual thoughts. This place is not a chatroom.
>3. Stay on topic!
By staying on topic I mean staying on the topic of the board. Discussions naturally wander all over the place, therefore it is perfectly fine to start a thread about taxation and then discuss government bonds, as both of those topics are quite financial in nature. But if you want share your essay about why Atlas Fugged is the best book ever, then you should use the designated offtopic thread; otherwise don't be surprised if your post gets moved there.
>4. Use the catalogue!
Don't be afraid to start a new thread (as long as it has to do something with the topics of the board), but at least look through the catalogue to see if there is already one that covers whatever you want to post about. There is no point in every anon starting his own ˝How do I stop being a poorfag?˝ thread when one mega-thread would serve all of us better. As such, if you make a new thread that brings nothing new to the table, then it might be moved to the appropriate already existing thread.
>5. No spamming!
Should be quite obvious, but I also consider advertising events and imageboards to be a form of spam. For the latter you are free to use the designated offtopic thread.

I kind of like the idea, but the execution is not so good. Ideally these gold notes should have the size and form of a credit card, so that you can stack them in those fancy modern valets that only hold cards. And if you think about it, you could also shape solid gold into that form, and then also clad it in polymer. 

I can imagine an economy where you have digital fiat currency and these gold notes of various weights existing as competing currencies, with the former being preferred. Accepting the digital currency would be mandatory for every business, but they are also allowed to accept these gold notes instead. although they can also refuse the latter. Also, back in the 19th century you could show up at a mint with some gold or silver, and they'd give you coins for them. The amount of precious metals in those coins was less than what you gave to the mint, and that was the payment. I can imagine the exact same system would work with these gold notes. Gresham's law would most likely turn this whole thing into a hobby for the most part, as 99% of people would use the digital money for more than 99% of their transactions, but at least those die hard fans of gold w
