Economic Actors.

Posted: 2015-01-29 in Uncategorized

Apparently, “people are not the only economic actors who are required to accept banknotes” (citation: Wikipedia), indeed, vending machines are also presented with the quandary of defacement.

I love that quote, it makes me think that we are all nothing but machines, “economic actors”, about which nothing much matters, just so long as we keep functioning and propelling the global economic behemoth, one way or another, forward.

Well, I guess someone gets rich off of our automatic (compelled) actions. … Like, what, can I really refuse to accept payment of that Dollar bill, which would cost me 10 minutes of my hard labor and/or buy me a few slices of crappy bread?
