I could not find this Category Suggestions thread earlier, I must be bad at searching. Or too used to browsing in places where search doesn't work Thank you mods for pointing it out:
This was the basis of my request, which I emailed to the mods:
I just posted about the failure of Heta Asset Resolution Bank in Austria. Earlier I posted about Iceland's economy & Auroracoin, replying in the Bitcoin thread, and about Syriza / Greece here. I believe a section on International Finance would be a good thing here. I have a lot to say about the economies & finances in the US, Eurozone and elsewhere, including China, Russia, Venezuela, etc.
The question of altcoin / bitcoin and the future to me relies a great deal on potential failures of fiat economies and things in the finance world are beyond crazy. I know the international finance story fairly well from 1870 forward, and nothing has ever happened like what we see today with the printing of billions and billions by central banks all around the world. Something's going to pop and it may be sooner rather than later.
My first thought was a new top-level "Finance & Economics" with sections for:
Russia & Eastern Europe
Central & South America
However this might be moving too quickly. Perhaps the best solution for now is to put two new sub-sections under the "General Discussion" header:
Finance & Economics
Political Theory (I have some things to say about this, w/ Hannah Arendt as a starting point)
EDIT: after re-reading the top post I'd suggest a third heading: "Business Development"
If we see enough action there to deserve it, a new top header may come in the future. But for now this would definitely make things easier for those wanting up to date info on the world's economy.
What do you think?
