I've often wondered how much it would promote good will and peace if the financial barriers to global communication were eliminated. Would we just start calling random people across the world just to say hi?
I had an interesting conversation a few weeks ago about the "tax the rich" initiatives that were going around. One suggestion about how to get the money hoarders to spend and stimulate the economy was to simply print more money and devalue their stash. This would discourage people from stockpiling money in their bank accounts unnecessarily. I'm sure it's not as simple as that, but an interesting idea none-the-less!
