How to make a lot of money? And why exactly money?
Should we get educated, learn desirable skills and work for big salary?
Making money is a convincing game.
Find something that you can easily obtain and all you need to do is to shout laud and long and very convincingly that people need it.
You can take It to the next level and convince other loud and convincing people to start screaming you message to far distant lands and to the right people. The message could be pretty much anything:
“Paid software is better than free software!”
“Smoking is cool” then “Smoking kills”
“We will teach you how to make money.”
Alternatively to promoting new ideas, is to borrow wide spread beliefs, and join the people that are already singing that song. For example yourself”
“Gold has been valued for 6000 years. Buy gold now!”
“Enjoy nature. Park tickets on sale! And always clean after
The champions of the convincing game are the people that “print” money. They have created whole industries and science to promote their product. Economists, bankers, financial advisors, even military are loyal defender of the idea that only few people can “print” money, and the rest of the planet should waste their life chasing it. Parents teach their kids in the importance of money.
Bitcoin is the same idea by a competing team. Bitcoin community was able to convince a segment of population in the superiority of the idea. They have strong belief in the idea, however for the majority of the people the idea remains unconvincing.
A research of what people believe can be very useful. Especially beliefs that people think that the rest of population don’t understand.
