“I would like to have money controlled by computer.” – 1991
That’s what Milton Friedman said in 1991. He was an American economist and statistician who received the Nobel Memorial Prize in economic.
Truly, he was a visionary on his own.
“The internet is going to be one of the major forces for reducing the role of government. The one thing that is missing, but that soon will be developed, is a reliable e-cash. A method whereby on the internet you can transfer funds from A to B, without A know B and B knowing A. The way in which i can take a $20 bill and hand it over to you and there is no record of where it came from. And you may get it without knowing who I am.”
“I would like to get rid of the Federal Reserve too! I would like to have money controlled by computer!
May your dreams come true Mr.Friedman. We’re working on it right now!
Just wanted to share it here with you guys, to show, how some of the people perceived the world then, and what we see now.
We’re the future.
