    Inhaltsangabe

    In The Fiat Standard, world-renowned economist Saifedean Ammous applies his unique analytical lens to the fiat monetary system, explaining it as a feat of engineering and technology just as he did for bitcoin in his global best seller The Bitcoin Standard.

    This time, Ammous delves into the world's earlier shift from the gold standard to today's system of government-backed fiat money—outlining the fiat standard's purposes and failures; deriving the wider economic, political, and social implications of its use; and examining how bitcoin will affect it over time.

    With penetrating insight, Ammous analyzes global political currencies by analogy to bitcoin: how they're "mined" whenever government-guaranteed entities create loans, their lack of inherent restraints on inflation, and the rampant government intervention that has resulted in heavy, devastating, and persistent distortions to global markets for food, fuel, science, and education.

    Through these comparisons, Ammous demonstrates that bitcoin could be our next step forward—providing high salability across space, just like the fiat system, but without the unchecked fiat-denominated debt. Rather than a messy hyperinflationary collapse, the rise of bitcoin could look like a debt jubilee and an orderly upgrade to the world's monetary operating system, revolutionizing global capital and energy markets.

    Amazing

    Just like The Bitcoin Standard, large parts of this book are amazing and teach invaluable lessons. However, in my opinion the author takes his „fiat is the root of all evil“ mentality too far in the second part of the book, e.g. by implying that all modern dietary guidelines are merely the result of governments trying to hide inflation.

    Take it with a grain of salt

    Has good base ideas / questions, but often ignores other factors, disagree on quite some things with the author because the view is quite one dimensional.

    But good food for thought nonetheless.
