This week’s Ignite Show veers into the current financial situation of the US. The economy is going off a cliff and financial practices are being, ahem, re-evaluated. Anthony Citrano takes this thinking a step further and ponders what would happen if the US dollar disappeared. He suggests that corporations will end up issuing money (like Kong Bucks in Snow Crash).
Anthony Citrano co-founded Pop!Tech and worked on the Obama campaign. He has written for Consumerist, The Huffington Post, Money, the New York Times, Investor’s Business Daily, the Wall Street Journal, WIRED, and his blog, The Cosmic Tap. This talk was filmed by Social Animal and was given at the first ignite LA.
