Many monetary economists are employees of a central bank. Many others in universities get prestige or funding for their work on behalf of monetary authorities.
Is it really so surprising the fiat economists rarely speak positively of bitcoin?
@Fkrauss It probably matters more that they're open minded than whether the orangepiller has good technique and skill
@stephanlivera yeah, but you don't want to screw it up. I always get dismissals of Austrian econ. "no one takes them seriously in academia"
@melik @Fkrauss @stephanlivera It *does* help to have increasing adoption as a sign what you're doing is worthwhile, and expand the industry so you can do it as your day job. But having been through this with Linux, I'd argue price-go-up is not necessary.
(In #bitcoin it's hard for them to be separate though, so it's a bit of a moot point!)
I completely agree. I don't mean to discredit or devalue the work everyone is doing in this space whether it be software development, economic theory, education, network building; these are important efforts that play a key role in building the bitcoin network.
I just mean if someone is blatantly ignorant to this end, NgU is the final orange pill and *will* pull them in.
@stephanlivera government's capture of the intellectual class is necessary to provide legitimacy to their actions in a secular society. Modern day "cuz god says so"
