    I get way too excited when I hear about the amount of copper in coinage, valuation, and inflation. Interesting video man!

  6. Haraesh Jayaraman says:

    Quick question out of curiosity: when DID the Japanese started using coins again? When did the concept of paper money and coinage make a comeback?

    I still admire the japanese saving mentality. I wish Americans were more like that. You know you spend like your friends and if you're surrounded by the Jones, you'll never be able to save.

    Quit the "We Asians take over America" bit.
    It was just a silly comment but As an Asian American I find that shit Cringy.
    I like your channel because you know your history. Don't get silly. If I find it ridiculous, Im sure some politically sensitive "progressive" whites will too.
    (Chill Weaboos, your comments are worthless here)

    One of reasons of the fall of Roman Empire was malignant inflation caused by counterfeiting… For ancient or medieval rulers currency control was always big challenge.

    What do we learn when government interferes in the money supply ? Linfamy you should read some works of the austrian school of economics for further details. I highly recommend it you.

    If you wanna criticize Bitcoin. Do it in the right way. All State currencies at the other hand came down to their base-value……namely zero!

    Do so many that you will actually have no life


    " What's that you're holdin' there? "
    " A Wadōkaichin! "
    " A Wadōkaichin…! Brilliant! … what's it do?"
    " Well, I've figured out how to trade six beers at the same time! "
    " …Trade Six Beers at the same time…! Brilliant! Let's make them all at the same time!"
    " … maybe we, shouldn't, make them all at the same time…? "
    " …Not Make them all at the same time…? "
    " Brilliant! "
    " Brilliant! "
