The exaggerate speculation phase was to be expected. Not long ago,

I have few doubts that it will survive, but as humans are humans, it
can still take a lot of different shapes.
The value of money is proportional to the thrust we have in the job
of others, but this makes hard to correct the system and recognize
errors, or lies, as it temporally devalue moneys. But already for
the middle run, that attitude devalue money too, and more deeper in
the long term.
There is no global valuation of money or any other resource as
such requires a global view. If we use a local (or finite
combination thereof) measure, we can define use the mechanism of
(mutual) trust to generate valuations. Differences in local
valuations define entropy flows (and associated Gibbs free energies)
that can be used to quantitatively define economic systems and
There is no global valuation, OK. But there is a global devaluation
associated to the amount of black money, grey money, and money based
on lies, like with the "war on drugs", to take the clearest example.
A mathematically very complex problem is in putting cows in some
geometry, in such a way that the cows have enough good grass so that
they produce good milks (in that theory). But it has a very simple
solution in practice.
Just put 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, ... cows in the geometry, and just *listen*
to the cow. Once they complain, put one cow back from the field-
geometry, and the problem is solved.
Many humans problems would get quite simplified and often solved if
the humans were able to listen to themselves and do their job.
The humans problems comes from the lies based on short termed
conflicts of interest.
The net will help. There too, the prohibition-like attitude will
only accelerate the prohibited-things, and the undernets.
There is nothing to fear, except the merchandizing of fear and other
money based on investments on the worst.
Indeed! Every problem has a solution.
The situation is very bad. We assist to a pyramidizition of the
society. It is a perversion of capitalism. It has killed *many*people
in the world. Not just in Mexico. 5 years of alcohol prohibition has
given Al Capone. 70 years of marijuana prohibition has given ... ?
The problem is not money. It is black and grey money. The nets, and
undernets, can help but can also been misused. The subdomain, in the
Right, of cyber-criminality has some future, alas.
