Bitcoin 1
 - 

The following public relations email landed in my inbox this morning:

 

I'll just paste the first line here: "Bitcoin is now accpeted for payment at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park."

 

It brings to mind the opening scene in my colleague David Brancaccio's book from a decade or so ago in which he went to report on the economics of a French nudist colony, and finds himself clutching a a fistful of French banknotes... with nowhere to put them.

 

Think about it.

 

The book's called "Squandering Aimlessly".  It's on Amazon.
