[snips] Quoting: Unit3
Do you feel Chaol has complete control of all of his perspectives?
I'm barely scratching the surface, so to speak.
As I've explained it earlier it would be as if you took a trip to an other planet and explained your world's monetary system.
Some people may be generally fascinated with such a system (should they have only vague concepts of exchanged value in their world) but for me it's just normal. I'm not "an economist" but rather someone quite normal in my world who happens to use "money".
Others may despise the idea (rightfully so).
Instead of calling them dollars maybe you will call them units to suit local tastes. You adopt your explanation to make it a bit easier to understand.
I can explain some things about it and know a little bit about "derivatives" and other instruments but I'm by no means an expert.
Right now we've just gotten off of counting (1, 2, 3...) and the nature of buying and selling (the Genius) and are moving to more advanced topics such as interest (some of what we're getting into on the past couple of pages).Although I must say we have enough material for the next 50 years. There is so much left to explain :)
