Together with the financial banking, these two system engage in the dance of the virtuous circle of innovation enterprise. Apart, they collapse into the swirling cesspool of eternal debt and infinite interest (pun intended).
Very few discussions about the future of money approach the subject with as much experience, introspection, and clarity as this historic panel has. This is not another doom-gloom room – but a truly optimistic model of a future financial system built on a platform of social media.

This may be the first indication that the Dollar is NOT the currency of trade in the social media space, it’s a yet unnamed Social Currency. This definitely tells us that something new must happen soon.
