I thought there might be something revealing in those documents so I actually read through 3 of them.

I don't recommend anybody bother with Henderson's "essays".

The History of Money Part II is clearly written with a bias and doesn't aid in understanding. It just points fingers without reasoning or counterargument, but with plenty of emotional language.

So what's the point of this DIY money? I'm not enlightened.

Does it apply to countries that aren't America?
