Well, thanks for your contribution non-economist, non-mathematician, non-computer-understanding, person who had a friend who bought #Bitcoin once who failed to hold it.
I'm glad that as someone who doesn't understand economics you feel able to contribute to the discussion about an immaterial thing that you think shines and is heavy.
And thanks for publishing such well informed opinion The #Spectator!
