If everyone’s super, no one’s super.
@Raterpillar , well, you could be super poor and and I can be super rich. We’ll be both super. Yay!
@Raterpillar , well, we already live in a world where everyone is "special", and they've got the Participation trophies to prove it!
@Raterpillar , or we could use this as an example that money is a flawed system. And create a better system in which priority shifts from profits and planned obsolescence to post scarcity.
Nobody’s rich if everyone’s rich.
@JDPhi, making a Big Mac cost $10k
I mean, technically still a billionaire though...
@Jomyani, no, since money isn’t backed by gold it wouldn’t cause inflation, it would just cause the price of gold to plummet to nothing.
@Fishboy495, to be a billionaire you need a billion dollars at one point in time or accumulated during your life time, depending on your definition. It has nothing to do with the value of goods to be purchased.
@Implicit88, Yes but if the value of gold drops significantly you won’t have a billion dollars because the dollar is not tied to a gold value, so it would stay about the same.
@Langenator, value of gold wont easily drop. It is used in technological applications that are one time use. Plus this assumes everyone sells their gold.
@Fishboy495, yup, supply and demand. No demand (everyone has it) over supply equals significantly lower value...
@Implicit88, dude, this is pretty simple supply and demand. If the amount of gold increases, the price will drop. Since gold isn’t tied to the dollar, there will be no inflation. It doesn’t matter if gold has other applications. Water has tons of application, yet it’s dirt cheap. Why? Because water is relatively abundant.
@Fishboy495, gold doesn’t have to enter supply. You are assuming everyone decides to sell their gold. Water is a regenerating resource its on a completely different level. Almost everyone has cars, but they arent dirt cheap, even including the used market. Why? People not everyone is selling. Supply /= Inventory.
@Implicit88, used cars can be kind of cheap. Cars are also made up of resources like iron, steel, plastic, and copper. Those all cost money because they aren’t as abundant as something like water. It isn’t because “people aren’t selling”. That is so ridiculous I think you might actually be trolling.
The things I would do to this girl are astronomical! Dirty filthy things like a space asteroid
@celtics313131, I would kiss her face and hold her hand
@The next plague, oh gosh ya, nothing more than that, I’m a Christian
@The next plague, you dirty whore!
I mean still makes since to mine it right? It resources out of our finite pool on earth. Or would it cause more harm to add it to our society? I feel like it would just make gold extremely cheap.
Thats not inflation.
Maybe it would let us use gold more freely when it comes to conducting currents.
Who am I kidding, some rich scumbag would sieze the land the thing lands on and just hoard it all for themselves.
All three survivors, and the roaches.
