Nine state regulators form Emerging Payments Task Force to study Bitcoin

Nine state regulators form Emerging Payments Task Force to study Bitcoin | money money money | Scoop.it

Bitcoin may be thriving as a relatively unregulated currency, but governments are beginning to pay it more heed as it grows in popularity. On Thursday, a group of nine state regulators formed the Emerging Payments task force; it is charged with studying virtual currencies and learning "how new entrants and technologies affect the stability of payment systems and the broader financial marketplace."

Adam Smith on the financial crisis

Adam Smith on the financial crisis | money money money | Scoop.it

TIRED of lightweights bickering over the financial crisis and its aftermath? Of economic upheaval becoming merely fodder for intellectually dishonest political campaigns? Wonder what biggest thinkers might have to say? Our efforts to consult the giants of economics have been hampered by an unfortunate fact: many of the most important ones are not only dead, but they died long before governments and central banks began to concoct such unconventional policy tools such as quantitative easing. That explains their absence from the argument—so far.
