Money, banks, and the whole con…

For many years I’ve tried to understand the whole business of money…and failed. Very knowledgeable, tolerant, patient people have tried to explain the international banking system in the simplest terms they can conjure, and I still didn’t get it.
But today The Tea God directed me to this brilliant description of what is going on. Suddenly, it all makes sense, like some sort of epiphany. Many of you will already understand these basic things, and I ask you to go easy on me for missing the point for so long…money has never made sense to me. Now I realise that it just doesn’t make sense full-stop [period].

It’s a shame to discover this now, just as I’m beginning to enjoy life. Even work is enjoyable at the moment; something that hasn’t happened for many years. I’m doing interesting, mentally stretching work, and that seems to make me happy. Weird eh ? Admittedly another source of pleasure is that my line manager has been able to keep me far, far, away from meetings, internal politics, and all of the other shit that gets in the way of the work. Also, we get to eat some good lunches…mmmmmmmmmm…Wawa…
