  4. Money and prices are simply inescapable. The only two things we can actually do to save society and the planet, no matter how difficult and unlikely they may seem are, says Poor Richard:

    - put an upper limit on the concentration of wealth by taxation. A universal basic income coupled with highly progressive taxation of both income and property can create a maximum ratio between the top and bottom strata of wealth
    - price things objectively. The price for removing a mountaintop or a forest must be equal to the cost of replacing it.

  5. Passive software-based investment services determine a suitable asset allocation given your risk preferences and invest your money in a diversified portfolio of low-cost index fund and ETFs.

    Shalek says that such services are very, very often better than active investment advisors who charge higher fees and pick individual stocks or mutual funds.

    He considers online services like Wealthfront or Future Advisor "by far the smartest way of investing, 99% of the time, for people who don’t manage their money full time", and then explains that he prefers to have software manage his money, because software:

    - isn’t greedy or fearful
    - isn’t irrational
    - always loves investing
    - doesn’t have a vacation home to pay for

  7. Few people know about the world's up-and-coming bitcoin richest and what motivates them to accumulate and maintain large balances.

    The Bitcoin Richest ranks the top worldwide holders of bitcoin wealth on the blockchain. We cannot identify the affluent person or business and the same entity may hold the private keys to multiple bitcoin addresses. At the current exchange rate of $6.50 per BTC, the top address on the list holds control to an astonishing $2.85 million in total value (as of 6/20/12)

  8. Demurrage currencies like Freicoin align incentives of bankers and financiers with the priorities of working class, forcing the wealthy through their own self-interest to invest in growth, jobs, and ventures with long-term thinking. An economy based on demurrage currency would not fall victim to to the same greed, excess, and short-term thinking that led to the 2008 crisis and financial collapse. Freicoin would instead continuously stimulate global growth through reinvestment, and dis-incentivize the hoarding by the 1% that caused the “credit crunch”.
