BLACK DISMALAPOD
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who is best left to your own devices because everyone else is a moron. Family and friends expect to see your mug shot at the post office. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time driving to a factory outlet wanting to buy either a T-shirt commemorating yesterday or a pair of handcrafted oven mitts. Be on the lookout for crowded shopping malls. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter Y, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 483951. Your preferred shopping venue is convenience stores. Your special symbol is the pound sign (#).


Is this You?

As a Black Dismalapod, you tend to be grumpy and gloomy, morose and melancholy, and often downcast and disgruntled. You don't really trust others and expect only the worst from them. You are seldom disappointed. You tend to spend a lot of time by yourself. Sadly, you recognize that you are destined to come up on the short end of any economic transaction.


This isn't me! What am I?
GOLDSMITH BANKING

An analysis of banking functions based on the semi-realistic activities of the goldsmith profession of Medieval Europe. Because the gold used a production inputs by goldsmiths was also used as money, they developed many modern banking functions, including maintaining deposits, making loans, keeping reserves, and creating money. While the story of goldsmith banking is often embellished for instructional purposes, it does contain the essence of how goldsmiths operated as banks.

Creating WEALTH

Wealth -- what is it and how do you get it? Perhaps one of those home business franchises that sell cleaning products, housewares, or perfume can be your source of financial independence. And, as evidenced by those late-night infomercials, the always lucrative area of real estate investment is almost certain to turn you into a gadzillionaire by next Thursday. Or perhaps tinkering in the financial markets with penny stocks, gold futures, or silver options is more your cup of tea. (My personal favorite is the Darling Donna's Chimney Sweep outfit that gives you the opportunity for a meaningful career in the high-profile field of chimney maintenance products.) The question for today is: Are any of these get-rich-quick schemes better than buying a lottery ticket?

There were no banks in colonial America before the U.S. Revolutionary War. Anyone seeking a loan did so from another individual.
