My name is Art Powell. I live on the side of a mountain 15 miles out of a small town in the Interior of British Columbia, Canada. When people comment about how nice it is out here I ask them not to tell anyone else.
Quite a few years ago this guy read a book on the economics of money and banking. I was so fascinated with how money was created that when my first family broke up I went to university and did a degree in economics with an informal specialization in money and banking. While studying economics I started asking what are the ways in which human societies can organize the exchange of goods and service. To this end I took course in and have since read in economic history, economic anthropology and classical studies. These interests will be reflected in this blog.
