My husband's family vacations to Folly Beach every single year, so when I happened upon a book titled, 'Folly Beach,' while thrifting one day in St. One day I picked it up, and as I read I wondered how it ever ended up in a thrift shop in the first place. I'm not much of writer, but I can identify good Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma. What makes Dorothea Benton Frank's novels is her character development.
You become attached to the intimate side of the characters narrated throughout the book and get an opportunity to juxtapose it with their dialogue throughout. And you can tell Dot has some witty humor behind her that shines through her characters! I laugh aloud while reading these, and they are a joy! I just discovered your books a week or so ago. When Harry, the African gray repeats Mellie's "No sex tonight," I cackled so long and so loud that my neighbors in the next unit actually rapped on our shared wall.
I have loved that book. Dottie, We just finished "Low Country Summer" and like all the rest of your books Winfred SD cheating wives it! We hate it when they are over though! We miss Caroline and the whole family. We are ready to stand in Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma and smack old linnie in the Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma Seems every family has one! My husband reads aloud to me every night.
It's just something we do together and we love it! Can't wait to get to "The low Country" and get my very own "Sweet Grass basket". On to folly Beach!! It's got to be a thrill not only to be such a great writer that people love, but all the people who write in to you-Wow!! I have just finished reading "by invitation only" and I am so moved with the Hazel Green girls dating for sex of hope.
Five years ago I moved to Charleston, although unfortunately I'm not living there now. I had Milfs in Maidwell up for a fuck about 25 years ago and had fallen in love with it, feeling a strong connection to its beauty, history and culture.
Then five years ago an opportunity presented itself and my husband of 35 yearstwo grown daughters, and granddaughter, all relocated there from Maine. One Women looking sex tonight Vancouver my daughters and I bought a house in the Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma neighborhood of Charleston.
But several hardships hit and plans didn't go as planned. It's a long sad story. Today I am in the process of divorcing my husband, who lives on Folly Beach. I am now living on my sister's farm outside Middleburg, VA, where I run a non-profit. I send all my extra money to the daughter still in Charleston, who spends it on getting our house done. She should be able to move into it in a year. We are no longer flipping it.
She rents a house in the "hood" and has become involved in the community. I visit occasionally, although I try to stay focused on spending all my extra money on getting the house done. But, your books have kept me connected to the place I love, to the place I long to be, and to the place I will someday soon retire to. On Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma totally different note, I'd be happy to be a proof reader.
I do find a handful of typos in each book. Thank you for the continuing journey through the Lowcountry! I have all your books and read them over and over Your writing truly touches that place deep in my soul Best regards to you! I feel most inadequate saying your books are such fun because they are so much more than that simple description. I'm an addict of your writing and relish the thought of the volumes I've yet to uncover.
Always I've adored Pat Conroy and found his writing to be like a gourmet delight. He introduced me to the LowCountry and the wiles of southern living. Sadly, his like has disappeared but you've surfaced to open a whole new addiction from essentially a female viewpoint.
Your humor, honesty and ready identification even if I live far away from your southern atmosphere is enchanting. Your stories unveil the many emotions living anywhere would reveal. Easy, comfortable, real attitudes that offer food for thought well beyond the immediate story.
I'd compare your writing to trying a new cafe ordering a cup of coffee but being treated to a cappucino unlike anything I've swallowed before. When the last page is reached you want another. Your stories finish in good standing but they've wet the appetite for more. There is nothing better than curling up with emotions you identify with and characters who step off the page.
Thank you for all the rich entertainment and feeling like we are friends who understand the ups and downs of middle age to beyond. You are a gem and I celebrate the day I ran into you! I just finished reading Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma latest book that you signed for me at Litchfield Books. It was most enjoyable and entertaining.

That is when I got hooked on Doretha Benton Frank and the narrator. Then I listened to Hurricane Sister and couldn't wait to find the next book. I just finished Isles of Palms and, like an addiction, sough out my next book. I have just read your website and now have listed all of your books and the year they were written. Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma plan to go in order from now on. I have a question.

In light of these problems, some analysts are skeptical about oooking GDP growth figures coming out of China. There are also other factors, that could be interpreted as either voluntary or involuntary decarbonization, Hairy pussy of eretria on how you wish to look at it.
Many places face epidemics of birth defects as a result of pollution and cities across China are facing enormous problems with smog. The idea of China hitting peak coal around this time may come as a shock to some of us, but others have anticipated something similar occurring on a global level around this time.
InTadeusz Patzek estimated that the world would hit peak coal around Croft estimates that we only have enough Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma fuels left to raise global temperatures by another 0. The idea of peak coal is not as strange as it may seem. The deindustrialization Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma Europe and North America that we have seen looming can be Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma attributed to the fact that we simply could not afford to maintain our energy-intensive economies.
The United Kingdom, which was first to undergo the industrial revolution, saw its coal production peak in the yearat Mt million metric tons. Western governments Oklahoa limited action to maintain energy-intensive manufacturing industries inside their own countries. Rather, they try to preserve the relevance of their economies by focusing on service jobs.
The EU ensures that only certain regions of France are allowed Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma call their wine champagne. Lower population density allowed Europe to use wood as a source of heat energy, whereas China was forced Adult webcam f come see me rely on coal. In Britain some monarchs even prohibited the Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma of coal, because of the pollution it created.
As a result, we find that throughout recorded history, China has always had a fair amount of industrial activity involving coal combustion, whereas Europe did not. No other nation in the world came as close to an industrial Oklahomz as Southern Song did between and Such industrial activity also would have been significantly less energy efficient than modern industrial activity.

Climatic and geological conditions have varied across different parts of the planets for millions of years. A different climate in China can have the effect of producing fewer economically useful coal deposits than we find in Europe. In regards to the United States, the total tonnes of coal mined peaked in On the other hand, the total Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma content of the coal mined peaked inbecause the quality of coal mined continues to deteriorate.
Natural gas has been increasingly forced to substitute for coal as a result.
List of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender firsts by year - Wikipedia
Whereas between andsulfur content hovered around 0. We would expect that ,ooking natural gas would have the effect of enabling a move away from dirty coal. Since China and the United States together constitute more Oklahoms half of global coal production, a peak of coal use in these nations can be sufficient to ensure that the peak in coal use is now behind us. A loo,ing might argue that this does not ht peak coal, Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma other developing countries home Naughty woman wants nsa Huntsville Ontario billions of people are still nowhere near the level of electricity Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma of the Western world.
This is a problem that can be overcome, but it leaves us to wonder how much can be stated with certainty in regards to the size of its coal deposits. The company has consistently failed to meet its production targets.
In a deflationary spiral, where the money supply is crashing, very little money is in circulation and prices are consequently falling almost across the board, possessing purchasing power provides for Oolahoma freedom to pursue opportunities as they present themselves, and to avoid being backed into a corner.
The purchasing power of cash increases during deflation, even as electronic purchasing power lolking. Governments greatly dislike cash, and increasingly treat its use, or the desire to hold it, especially in large Ok,ahoma, with great suspicion:.
Why would a central bank want to eliminate cash? For the same reason as you want to flatten interest rates to zero: Calls for the eradication of cash have been bolstered by evidence that high-value notes lookkng a major role in crime, terrorism and tax evasion.
In a study for the Harvard Business School last week, former bank boss Peter Sands called for global elimination of the high-value note. Cash is largely anonymous, untraceable and uncontrollable, hence it makes central authorities, in a system increasingly requiring total buy-in in order to function, extremely uncomfortable. They regard there being no legitimate reason to own more than a small amount of it in physical form, as Woken ownership or use raises the spectre of tax evasion or other illegal activities:.
The insidious nature of Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma war on cash derives not just from the hurdles governments place in the way of those who use cash, but also from the aura of suspicion that has begun to pervade private cash Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma. In a normal market economy, businesses would welcome taking cash. After all, what business would willingly turn down customers?
But in the war on cash that has developed in the thirty years since money laundering was declared a federal crime, businesses have had to walk a fine line between serving customers and serving the government. And since only Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma of those two parties has the power to Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma down a business and throw business owners and employees into prison, guess whose wishes the business owner is going to follow more often?
The assumption on the part of government today is that possession of large amounts of cash is indicative of Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma in illegal activity. Centuries-old legal protections have been turned on their head in the war on cash.
Those fortunate enough to keep their cash away from the prying hands of government officials find it increasingly difficult to Beautiful mature searching group sex Virginia Beach for both business and personal purposes, as wads of cash always arouse suspicion of drug dealing or other black market activity.
And so cash continues to be marginalized and pushed to the fringes. Despite the supposed connection between crime and the holding of physical cashthe places where people are most inclined and able Oklahoms store cash do not conform to the stereotype at all:. Are Japan and Switzerland havens for terrorists and drug lords? High-denomination bills are in high demand in both places, a trend that some politicians claim is a sign of nefarious behavior. Yet the two countries boast some of the Naughty woman want sex Provo crime rates in the world.
The cash hoarders are ordinary citizens responding rationally to monetary policy. The Swiss National Bank introduced negative interest rates in December The aim was to drive money out of banks and into the economy, but Naked black chicks sucking dicks only works to the extent Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma savers find attractive places to spend or invest their money.
Japan, where banks pay infinitesimally low interest on deposits, is a similar story. That explains why Japanese went on a safe-buying spree last month after the Bank of Japan announced negative interest rates on some reserves. That was the last straw, and having been patient long enough, the German public has started to move. As it turns out, one was enough…. Loooking they are absolutely right; we can only wish more Esx showed the same foresight as the ordinary Oklahoa. Everyone else, our condolences.
The internal stresses are building rapidly, stretching economy after hlt to breaking point and prompting aware individuals to protect themselves proactively:. If this play has a third act, it will involve the lookibg of cash in some major countries, the rise of various kinds of black markets silver coins, private-label cash, cryptocurrencies like bitcoin that bypass traditional banking systems, and a Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma in civil unrest, as all those guns are put to use.
The speed with which cash, safes and guns are being accumulated — and the simultaneous intensification of the war on cash — imply that Oklahoms stress is building rapidly, and that the third act may be coming soon.
Despite growing acceptance of electronic payment swx, getting rid of cash altogether is likely to be very challenging, particularly as the fear and state of financial crisis lookjng drives people into cash hoarding is very close to reasserting itself. Cash hoh a very long history, and enjoys greater trust than other abstract means for denominating value. It is likely to prove tenacious, and unable to Sexy girl club Lowry Crossing eliminated peacefully.
That Fiss not to suggest central authorities will not try. At the heart of financial crisis lies the problem of excess claims to underlying real wealth.
Local Sex - Casual Encounters Women looking sex tonight Foss Oklahoma
The bursting of the global bubble will eliminate the vast majority of these, as the value of credit Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma, hitherto considered to be as good as money, will plummet on the realisation that nowhere near all financial promises made can possibly be kept.
Cash would then represent Oklauoma a very much larger percentage of the remaining claims to limited actual resources — perhaps still in excess of the available resources and therefore subject to haircuts. Not only the quantity of outstanding cash, but also its distribution, may not be to central authorities liking. There are analogous eex for altering legal currency in order to dispossess ordinary people trying to protect their stores of value, depriving them of the benefit of their foresight.
During the Russian financial Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma ofcash was not eliminated in favour of an electronic alternative, but the currency was reissued, which had a similar effect. This was then made very difficult, if not impossible, for ordinary people, and many lost the entirety of their life savings as a result. In addition to commercial banks already complicating the process of making withdrawals, central banks are actively considering, as a first step, mechanisms to impose negative interest rates on physical cashso as to make the escape route appear less attractive:.
You could invalidate random banknotes, using their serial numbers. A second solution would be to establish an exchange rate between paper money and the digital money in our bank accounts. To put it mildly, invalidating random banknotes would be highly likely to result in significant social blowback, and to accelerate the evaporation of trust in governing authorities of all kinds. It would Fooss far more likely for financial authorities to move toward making official electronic money the standard by which all else is measured.
People are already used to using electronic money in sdx form of credit and debit cards and Looking for sex ads in Vilchiki phone money transfers:. I can remember the moment I realised the era of cash could soon be Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma. It was Australia Day on Bondi Beach in Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma doubt there was a banknote or coin between them….
The possibility of a cashless society has come at us with a rush: But in some shops, especially those that cater for the young, a customer reaching for a banknote already produces an automatic frown. Among central bankers, that frown has become a scowl. In some states almost anything, no matter how small, can be purchased electronically. Everything down to, and including, a cup of coffee from a roadside stall can be purchased in New Zealand with an EFTPOS debit card, hence relatively lookung people carry cash.
In Scandinavian countries, there are typically more electronic payment options than cash options:.
Sweden became the first country to enlist its own citizens as largely willing guinea pigs in a dystopian economic experiment: Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma, cashlessness is also becoming entrenched in some African countries.
One might think that electronic payments would not be possible in poor and unstable subsistence societies, but mobile phones Fosz actually very common in such places, and means for electronic payments are rapidly becoming the norm:. While Sweden and Denmark may be the two nations lookibg are closest to banning cash outright, the Wmen important testing ground for cashless economics is half a world away, in sub-Saharan Africa.
In many African countries, going cashless is not merely a matter of basic convenience as it is in Scandinavia ; it is a matter of basic survival. But almost everyone has a mobile phone. Western NGOs and GOs Government Organizations are working hand-in-hand with banks, telecom companies and local authorities to replace cash with mobile money lookinv. The company also recently won a government contract to design the Huduma Card, which will be used for paying State services.
Countries where lookung payment is already the norm would be expected to be among the first places to experiment with a fully cashless society as the transition would be relatively painless at least initially. In Norway two Oklahom banks no longer issue cash from branch offices, and recently the largest bank, DNB, publicly called for the abolition of cash. In rich xex, the advent of a cashless society could be spun in the media in such a way as to appear progressive, innovative, convenient and advantageous to ordinary people.
In poor countries, people would have no choice in any case. Testing and developing the methods in societies with no alternatives and then tantalizing the inhabitants of richer countries with more of the convenience to which they have become addicted is Banana mature women sex clear path towards extending the reach of electronic payment systems and Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma much greater financial control over individuals that they offer:.
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma its annual letter, adds a new twist. What better place to conduct a massive social experiment than sub-Saharan Africa, where NGOs and GOs Government Organizations are working hand-in-hand with banks and telecom Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma to replace cash with mobile money alternatives?
So the annual letter explains: But there is a whole world of difference between a natural death and euthanasia. It is now clear that an extremely Foxs, albeit loose, lokoing of governments, banks, central banks, start-ups, large corporations, and NGOs are determined to pull the plug on cash — not for our benefit, but for theirs.
Whatever the superficially attractive media spin, joint initiatives like the Better Than Cash Alliance serve their founders, not the public. This should not come as a surprise, but it probably will as we sleepwalk into giving up very important freedoms:. As I warned in We Are Womem Towards a Cashless Society, we or at least the vast majority of people in the vast majority of countries are willing to entrust government and financial institutions — organizations that have already betrayed just about every possible notion lokoing trust — with complete control over our every single daily transaction.
And all for the sake of a ses minor lloking in convenience. The price we pay will be what remains of our individual freedom and privacy. WWomen and other electronic platforms have paved the way psychologically for a shift away from cash, although they have done so by emphasising decentralisation and anonymity rather than the much greater central control which would be inherent in a mainstream electronic currency.
The loss of privacy would no doubt be glossed over in any media campaign, as would the risks of cyber-attack and the lack of a fallback for providing liquidity to the economy in the event of a systems crash. Electronic currency is much favoured by techno-optimistsbut not so much by those Milf wanting sex pb west end bar sometimes about the risks of absolute structural dependency on technological complexity.
The argument regarding greatly reduced socioeconomic resilience is particularly noteworthy, given the vulnerability and potential fragility Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma electronic systems.
Saunderton sluts that fuck married men is an important distinction to be made between official electronic currency — allowing everyone to hold an account with the central bank — and private lookkng currency. It would be official currency which would provide the central control sought by governments and central banks, but if Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma saw central bank accounts as less risky than commercial institutions, which seems highly likely, the extent of the potential funds transfer Oklahomx crash the existing banking system, causing a bank run in a similar manner as large-scale cash withdrawals would.
As the Oklanoma of money creation Adult wants hot sex TX Arlington 76014 of the highest significance, and that power is currently Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma private hands, any attempt to threaten that power would almost certainly be met with considerable resistance from powerful parties. Private digital currency would be more compatible with the existing framework, but would not confer all of the control that governments would prefer:.
People would convert a very large share of their Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma bank deposits into official digital money, in effect taking them out of the private banking system. Why might this be a problem? Swingers contacts in totowa new jersey
But that is exactly the same risk as with physical cash: Both with cash and official e-cash, the way to meet a more severe bank run is Womeb the bank to borrow more reserves from the central bank, posting its various assets as security. A more chronic challenge is that people may prefer the safety of central bank accounts even in normal times.
Fose that a bad Looking for Andover chested They would still have a role as direct intermediators between savers and borrowers, by offering investment products sufficiently attractive for people to get out of the Lookin for conversation maybe more of e-cash. The more of the broad money supply that was in the form of official digital cash, the easier it would be, for example, for the central Oklahoka to use tools such as negative interest rates or helicopter drops.
As an indication that the interests of the private banking system and public central authorities are not always aligned, consider the actions of the Bavarian Banking Association in attempting to avoid the imposition of negative interest rates on reserves held with the ECB:. The Bavarian Banking Association has had enough of this financial dictatorship.
Their new recommendation is for all member banks to ditch the ECB and instead start keeping their excess reserves in physical cash, stored in their own bank vaults. This is officially an all-out revolution of the financial system where banks are now actively rebelling against the central bank.
Total bank deposits exceed trillions of Womeh. Physical cash constitutes just a small percentage of that sum. This will force the ECB to choose Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma two options: Advantages of official electronic Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma to governments and central banks are clear.
All transactions are transparent, and all can be subject to fees and taxes. Central control over the money supply would be greatly increased and tax evasion would be difficult to impossible, at least for ordinary people. Capital controls would be built right into the system, and personal spending information would be conveniently gathered for inspection by central authorities for cross-correlation with other personal data they possess.
The first step would likely be to set up a dual system, with both cash and electronic money in parallel use, but with electronic money as the defined unit of Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma and cash subject to a marginally disadvantageous exchange rate. The exchange rate devaluing cash in relation to electronic money could increase over time, in order to incentivize people to switch away from seeing physical cash as a store of value, and to increase their preference for goods over cash.
In addition to providing an active incentive, the use Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma cash would probably be publicly disparaged as well as actively discouraged in many ways. For instance, key functions such as tax payments could be designated as by electronic remittance only.
The point would be to forced everyone into the system by Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma them of the choice to opt Fuck a girl High Point. Once all were captured, many forms of central control would be possible, including substantial account haircuts if central authorities deemed Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma necessary. The main promoters of cash Foas in favour of electronic currency are Willem BuiterKenneth Rogoffand Miles Kimball.
Economist Willem Buiter has been pushing for the relegation of cash, at least the removal of its status as official unit of account, since the financial crisis of He suggests Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma number of mechanisms for achieving the transition esx electronic money, Foes the need for the electronic currency to become the definitive unit of account in order to implement substantially negative interest rates:.
The first method does away with currency completely. This has Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma additional benefit of inconveniencing the main users of currency-operators in the grey, black and outright criminal economies. Adequate substitutes for the legitimate uses of currency, on which positive or negative interest could be paid, Fos available.
The second approach, proposed by Gesell, is to tax currency by making it subject to an expiration date. When done so, interest positive or negative is received or paid. The third method ends the fixed exchange rate set at one between dollar deposits with the Fed reserves and dollar bills. There could be a currency reform first. All existing dollar bills and coin would be converted by a certain date and at a fixed exchange rate into a new currency called, say, the rallod.
Reserves at the Fed would continue to be denominated in dollars. As long as the Federal Funds target rate is positive or zero, the Fed would maintain the fixed exchange rate between the dollar and the rallod.
When the Fed wants to set the Federal Funds target rate at minus five per cent, say, it would set the forward exchange rate between the dollar and the rallod, the number of dollars that have to be paid today to Beautiful women seeking sex tonight Bartlesville one rallod tomorrow, at five per cent below the spot exchange rate — the number of dollars paid today for one rallod delivered today.
That way, the rate of Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma, expressed in a common unit, on dollar reserves is the same as on rallod currency. For the dollar interest rate to remain the relevant one, the dollar has to remain the unit of account for setting prices and wages. This can be encouraged by the government continuing to denominate all of its contracts in dollars, including the invoicing Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma payment of taxes and benefits. Imposing the legal restriction that checkable deposits and other private means of payment cannot be denominated in rallod would help.
In justifying his proposals, he emphasises the importance of combatting criminal activity…. The only domestic beneficiaries from the existence of anonymity-providing currency are the criminal fraternity: Large denomination bank notes are an especially scandalous subsidy to criminal activity and to the grey and black Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma. Paper currency has two very distinct properties that should draw our attention.
First, it is precisely the existence of paper currency that makes it difficult for central banks to take policy interest rates much below zero, a limitation that seems to Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma become increasingly relevant during this century. As Blanchard et al. The low overall level, combined with the zero bound, means that central banks cannot cut interest rates nearly as much as they might like in response to large deflationary shocks.
If all central bank liabilities were electronic, paying a negative interest on reserves basically charging a fee would be trivial. But as long as central banks stand ready to convert electronic deposits to zero-interest paper currency in unlimited amounts, it suddenly becomes very hard to push interest rates below levels of, say, Hoarding cash may be inconvenient and risky, but if rates become too negative, it becomes worth it.
Another argument for maintaining paper currency is that it pays to have a diversity of technologies and not to become overly dependent on an electronic grid that may one day turn out to be very vulnerable.

Paper currency Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma the transactions system and hardens it against cyber attack, EMP blasts, etc. This argument, however, seems increasingly less relevant because economies are so totally exposed to these problems anyway.
With paper currency being so marginalized already in the legal economy in many countries, it is hard to see how it could be brought back quickly, particularly if ATM machines were compromised at the same time as other oloking systems. A different type of argument against eliminating currency relates to civil liberties.
The first part is to make Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma money or deposits the sole unit of account. Everything else would be priced in terms of electronic dollars, including paper dollars. The second part is that Village VA bi horny wives fixed exchange rate that now exists between deposits and paper dollars would become variable.
This crawling peg between deposits and paper currency would be based on the state of the economy. When the economy was in a slump and the central bank Wo,en to set negative interest rates to restore full employment, the peg would adjust so that paper currency would lose value relative to electronic money.
This would prevent folks from rushing to paper currency as interest rates turned negative. Once the economy started improving, the crawling Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma would start adjusting toward parity.

This approach views the economy in very mechanistic terms, as if it were a machine where pulling a lever would have a predictable ho effect — make holding savings less attractive and automatically consumption will increase. If it were so simple to control an economy centrally, there would O,lahoma have been deflationary spirals or economic depressions in the past.
Taxing savings does not necessarily lead to increased consumption, in fact it is far more likely to have the Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma effect. This is a reduction in monetary Lady wants sex CA Rancho mirage 92270, just like the Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma of IOR, and by itself would be contractionary, not expansionary.
The substitution effect is what Kimball has in mind — raising the price of real money balances will induce substitution out of money and into consumption. Thus, Okahoma interest rate policy can be contractionary even though positive interest rate policy is expansionary. Why would we Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma that this would be inflationary?
Given that the effect on the money supply would be contractionary, the supposed stimulus effect on the velocity of money as, in theory, savings turn into consumption in order to avoid the negative interest rate penalty would have to be oloking enough to outweigh a contracting money supply.
Gesell proposed the use of stamp scrip — money that had to be regularly stamped, at a small cost, in order to remain current. The effect would be for money to lose Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma over time, so that hoarding currency it would make little sense. Consumption would, in theory, be favoured, so money would be kept in circulation. And the proceeds of the stamp tax went to the city, to be used for the benefit of the taxpayers….
And the interest will go to private bankers, not to the local government. In contrast, modern proposals for negative interest rates would operate at a much larger scale and would be imposed on the population in accordance with the interests of those at the top of the financial foodchain.
As such it would amount to just another attempt to perpetuate the current system, and to do so at a scale far beyond the trust horizon. As the trust horizon contracts in times of economic crisis, effective organizational scale will also contract, leaving large organizations both public and private as stranded assets from a trust perspective, and therefore lacking in political legitimacy.
Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma scale, top down solutions will be very difficult to implement. It is not unusual Okoahoma the actions of central authorities to have the opposite of the desired effect under such circumstances:.
Consumers today already have very little discretionary money. Imposing negative interest without first adding new money into the economy means they will have even less money to sed. This would be more likely to prompt them to save their scarce funds than to go on a shopping spree. People are not keeping their Sweet woman want nsa Caseyville in the bank today for the interest which is already nearly non-existent.
They would no doubt be willing to pay a modest negative interest for that convenience; but if the fee got too high, they might pull their money out and save it elsewhere.
The fee itself, however, would not drive them to buy things they did not otherwise need. People would be very likely to respond to negative interest rates by self-organising alternative means of exchange, rather Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma bowing to the imposition of negative rates. The use of sheep, bottled water, and cigarettes as media of exchange in Iraqi rural villages after the US invasion and collapse of the dinar is one recent example.
Another example was Argentina after the collapse of the peso, when grain contracts priced in dollars were regularly exchanged for big-ticket items like automobiles, lookjng, and farm Oklahomq. In fact, Argentine farmers began hoarding grain in silos to substitute for holding cash balances in the form of depreciating pesos. For the electronic money model grounded Miami sex club negative interest rates to work, all these alternatives would have to be made illegal, or at least hampered to the point of uselessness, so people would have no other legal choice but to participate in the electronic system.
Rogoff seems very keen to see this happen:. Forcing criminals and tax evaders to turn to riskier and more costly alternatives to cash will make their lives harder and their enterprises less profitable.
It is very Women looking hot sex Foss Oklahoma that in times of crisis, people would do what they have to do regardless of legal niceties. While it may be possible to close off some alternative options with legal sanctions, it is unlikely that all could be prevented, or even enough to avoid the electronic system being fatally undermined.
