罗恩·保罗:加密货币+金本位可对抗全球经济衰退

前美国总统候选人、奥地利经济学家罗恩·保罗(Ron Paul)近日发表了一篇论文《美元困境》(The Dollar Dilemma),讨论了中央经济规划的世界问题。在报告中,保罗详细阐述了金本位和加密货币能如何实现共存,来抵抗市场垄断操纵经济的行为。

自由市场 VS 政府

罗恩·保罗是一位非常受欢迎的自由主义者,他曾多次竞选美国总统,但他总是提出一些与其他政治家不同的观点。比如,罗恩·保罗经常对美国公众说,他们应该终结美联储,或者至少对私人银行查账,并了解它多年来的经营情况。此外,罗恩·保罗从根本上认为,我们的货币应该回归金本位,并认为相信美国拥有自由市场经济的信念是一种错觉。罗恩·保罗独特的自由意志主义教义激发了许多人来信奉自由市场经济,并质疑政府目前的运作方式。

在最新论文《美元困境》中,罗恩·保罗详细阐述了当今货币体系的糟糕程度,并解释了加密货币与贵金属如何能够共存来对抗日益衰落的全球经济。他在论文中说道:

经济是由政府内外的个人和特殊利益集团联合经营的,包括控制中央经济规划的“深暗势力”。

操纵经济的目的,是为了防止市场力量要求规划者停止不断犯下的错误,这种欺骗性的行为只能持续有限的一段时间。在经济发展中,政府操纵最终将无法扭转市场的自然生长力量。

新旧货币的结合

罗恩·保罗进一步探讨金本位制是否能更好的为未来服务,或者是否它会成为加密货币的概念。他认为,评估局势的正确方法是,确保市场上的自由人士在没有政府和央行指令下,可以选择是否使用加密货币。这位前美国参议员解释说:

要让加密货币成功挑战金本位的历史地位,需要相当长的时间才能达成共识。

市场很有能力甄别加密货币和贵金属的优缺点。最大的挑战将是让政府给这个选择让位。可以考虑的是,让加密货币和金本位共存,而不是提出非此即彼的选择。为了更高效,不同的货币可能用于不同的交易。

该论文进一步指出:

出于对价值储存和交易速度的考虑,人们可能会选择不一样的货币。去中心化分类账技术似乎也将在加密货币领域之外发挥作用。与让人们适应一种全新的货币相比,黄金与加密货币的结合将被证明是更容易实现的。

该论文进一步指出,每一种货币都可以满足不同的需求,加密货币也可以保护隐私,尤其是涉及更大额的交易和更远距离的结算时。罗恩·保罗说,目前加密货币面临的最大挑战是,要满足标准价值尺度的先决条件。在罗恩·保罗看来,一种可行的货币必须让公众有信心,而且货币单位必须易于兑换,并保持可靠的真实价值。

区块链技术是另一个重大的科学突破,还是能与密码学结合成为一种功能性货币?这是一个只有市场才知道答案的问题是。目前最基本的问题归结为:是否所有新货币都需要基于有形的实物?

 

Just recently the notorious libertarian and Austrian economist, Ron Paul, released a paper that discusses the world’s issues with central economic planning. In the report, Paul goes into vast detail on how precious metals and cryptocurrencies can co-exist in order to prevent current market monopolies from “rigging the economy.”

Ron Paul: “Ultimately, the Market Proves More Powerful Than Government Manipulation of Economic Events”

Ron Paul is a very popular libertarian that ran for the U.S. presidency a few times, but he has always proposed some contrarian opinions unlike any other politician today. For instance, Paul constantly tells the American public that they should “end the Federal Reserve,” or at the very least audit the private bank and find out how it has been operating over the years. Furthermore, Paul fundamentally believes our money should revert back to the ‘Gold Standard,’ and feels it is “a fallacy to believe the U.S. has a free market economy.” Paul’s unique libertarian teachings have inspired a great number of people to embrace free-market economics and question the current way governments operate.

In Paul’s latest paper, The Dollar Dilemma, he details just how bad the monetary system is today, and explains how precious metals and cryptocurrencies can co-exist to help fight against the decaying global economy.

“The economy is run by a conglomerate of individuals and special interests, in and out of government, including the ‘Deep State,’ which controls central economic planning,” explains Paul’s paper.

Rigging the economy is required to prevent market forces from demanding a halt to the mistakes that planners continuously make — This deceptive policy can last only for a limited time — Ultimately, the market proves more powerful than government manipulation of economic events.

Cryptocurrencies & Gold: A Combination of the Old and New Monetary Practices

Paul further asks whether or not precious metals will serve as a better system for the future or if it will be the concept of cryptocurrencies. He believes the proper way to assess the situation is to make certain that “free people in the marketplace make the choice whether the use cryptos, absent the dictates of government and central banks.” Paul emphasizes the process “requires the rejection of the use of force and fraud for any chance of achieving success.” In order for cryptocurrencies to challenge the history of precious metal acceptance it will take a “significant amount of time to reach consensus,” explains the former U.S. senator.

“The marketplace is quite capable of sorting out the advantages and disadvantages of cryptocurrencies and precious metals. The biggest challenge will be to get the government out of the way to allow this choice,” Pauls paper details. “It’s conceivable that cryptocurrencies, using blockchain technology, and a gold standard could exist together, rather than posing an either-or choice — Different currencies may be used for certain transactions for efficiency reasons.”

The desire for storage and speed can make a difference in choosing a currency. It appears that decentralized ledger technology will also be useful outside the sphere of digital currencies. A combination of gold and crypto will prove to be a lot more achievable than getting people to adapt to a totally new concept of money.

“A Modern Day Currency Needs an Enlightened Attitude About What the Proper Role for Government Ought to Be in a Civil Society”

The paper further states that each type of money may serve different needs and cryptocurrencies may be able to help with privacy, especially when it involves larger transactions and settlement across greater distances. Paul says the biggest challenge right now for digital currencies is satisfying the prerequisites of a ‘standard unit of account.’ In Paul’s view, a workable currency must keep the public confident and the monetary unit needs to be easily exchanged and hold reliable “real value.”

“For society to advance to the point of accepting a truly denationalized monetary system, a significant amount of energy will be required to rein in the power of government authoritarians — A modern-day currency needs an enlightened attitude about what the proper role for government ought to be in a civil society,” Paul’s paper reveals. “We can use technical science for advancing civilization, but no one can ‘own’ it — As valuable as wheel technology was, no one ever bought and sold this technology as a piece of property.”

The question that can only be answered by the marketplace is whether or not blockchain technology is just another great scientific breakthrough, or can it, in combination with cryptography, become a functional currency? The basic question boils down to this: Do all new currencies need to be based on something tangible?
