We all use money almost every day. Most of us spend a majority of our life working hard to earn money. Thus most of us think the New Taiwan Dollar is both valuable and scarce. In this talk, I will explain why it is neither a long-term store of value nor scarce and how you, with your signature, can print millions of NTD legally. This to show how credit creates currency and inspire you to learn more about the financial system.
