Bitcoin and the Speculative Anarchist


I think it's worth considering the history of other substitutes for government provided currency when discussing the use of Bitcoin, etc, as an option. Specifically I'm thinking of the use of company script. In the U.S. this was more prevalent in the 19th century and brought with it (along with the fluctuating gold/silver standard) greater market volatility. The use of company script also provided an easy way to exploit workers by price gouging at the company store. This practice hasn't disappeared, i.e.
