My advice to whippersnappers is simple- start your own currency scam. The old guard have the traditional wealth, including the yachts, the real estate and the financial markets. The new billionaires have thrown in with the crypto-currency bunch. They're betting on water, net art, batteries and money that isn't really there.
The secret is that none of it is there.
I have personally witnessed folks doing unspeakable things for beads. Yeah, beads.
The real Americans gave away Manhattan Island for the things, remember?
They knew that you don't own the land. That's ridiculous.
If you're going for the intangibles, go with love. If you're holding out for something that you can own and wear and show off, stick with beads.
Have I ever steered you wrong?
