Crypto-currencies

Crypto-currenciessuch as Bitcoin Wallet offer a simple manner of shifting value fromone individual to another. The crypto-currencies entail adecentralized money structure since the FED does not have controlover the system. A computer system fixes the eventual supply of cointhus, the system imitates the mining of metal, previously used. Inaddition, inflation cannot erode the value of Bitcoin, butunfortunately, the system has only gained popularity in countrieswith weak central banks. In America, the system does not threaten therole of FED as the system has not gained acceptance as well as thefact that the value of Bitcoin has experienced much volatility thanthe prices of gold or S&ampP 500 stock.

PoliticalLeadership &amp Qualification Exams

Members ofCongress, political leaders, and presidents should not undertake acompetency test or screening before a popular vote as primariesespecially presidential primaries allow voters to screen presidentialcandidates. Although the tests were to act as prerequisite for theposts, people would still cultivate partisan stands on issues thus,such a system would not help. In fact, the congress or presidency hasnever lacked intelligent minds (about 94% of congressionalrepresentatives are college graduates). A college degree demonstratesthat congress people or people seeking presidential have afundamental comprehension of politics, logic, science, and history.In addition, the problem facing most elective posts is a partisanstand, lack of institutional tools, and superfluity of issues ratherthan lack of wisdom. However, such a system would ensure that peoplevoted in those areas have the required skills. In addition, it wouldensure that people voted in these offices do so through merit ratherthan political affiliations, a case that happens in some cases.However, the system would reduce these posts to posts based onemployment programs rather than based on elective premises.
