Thread: Nobel Jean #Tirole gave a public lecture at UCL tonight: 10 years after the #financialcrisis where do we stand. Key points:
1)#Finance is good if used and regulated properly. We seem to be making the same mistakes of 10 years ago. #Subprimes are up again in US. 1/
2) Its crazy for banks to hold a lot of their nation’s sovereign bonds. It creates a #doomloop. a bank fails>government needs more debt to bail it>brings down sovereign bond prices and more banks under stress> more public money needed. And yes he used Italy as an example.2/
3) #cryptocurrencies are a bubble. Fiat money and central banks have worked quite well in developed economies in the last 30 years. And with cryptocurrencies seignorage goes into private hands and not to the goverment.

@JoukoSalonen @TokenHash 2/ Only 3 cos positioned for p2p transaction layer with "battle tested" pub-sub platform: @litbysatori , @facebook with WhatsApp, and #tencent with WeChat. #satori capable of 500 Million "event" messages /ps built on top of #DTL @hashgraph capable of 100K tps.
