I am not a robosats hater! You said you prefer lightning because it's cheaper to get the sats home. That was exactly my question! Don't you still need an on chain transaction to get them in cold storage? Are you buffering lots of small buys in a lightning wallet and doing one big on chain transaction? I like lightning for boosting and payments, but I don't see it for long term storage. I for one like the dad only shows. At least I don't get accused of being a hater :p

What's the rationale for trying to raise the unemployment rate? Is this a weird USA thing or would that happen here in Aus as well? Must be a weird position to be the person trying to make more people jobless (unless it is a voluntary type of jobless).

Demand destruction. Unemployment rate higher = less people working. Less people working = less consumer spending. Less consumer spending = less demand. Less demand = lower prices. Lower prices = lower "inflation" according to whatever metric they're using at the time (traditionally has been CPI). It's pretty horrible when you think about it

this isn’t a US thing .. it’s a fiat / Keynesian thing. They even occasionally slip up and admit it. The best way I can explain is they are trying to throttle the economy so that growth slows down and inflation slows down.

I really enjoy chapters as well. Would be great if you could add images as well. I like having that extra visual element when you are talking about a person or graph as you do quite often 😁
