BNS 2020-02-21


La BNS a créé près de 40 milliards entre l'été 2019 et janvier 2020, soit l'équivalent de toute la base monétaire du Franc Suisse depuis le début des temps jusqu'au début de la crise financière. Le total actuel avoisine les 600 milliards ce qui fait une inflation monétaire de 15x ou +1400% depuis 2008. 

Juste un rappel: la BNS crée (et imprime en partie) des centaines de milliards ex nihilo parce que le franc suisse a une réputation de monnaie forte et de valeur refuge et qu'il y a trop d'acheteurs dans le monde pour satisfaire à la demande. En résumé, les investisseurs achètent et accumulent des billets de Monopoly parce qu'ils croient qu'ils ont de la valeur (celle des "vrais" billets). Cherchez le bug!

On se réjouit de l'édition de février, avec l'effet coronavirus!

"The stock market always goes up in the long run"

"The stock market always goes up in the long run" is what some financial advisers like to say in front of skeptical clients facing charts that jump to the sky. The argument: "You can buy at any price. If it goes down a little while, it doesn't matter, because it will go up and above later".

But... "later" can be a very long time!

Here is a famous example: Japan.

Never lose your progression with Pasta!

If you clean your browser's Local Storage data, or change browser or machine, you'll lose your progression in the game. That should not happen (again)!

So, on your next Pasta! session, rush to the small "avatar" icon, shown here by a blue arrow.



Then, copy your Player Code into a safe place. For instance, send it in a mail to yourself.


That's all!

By the way, you may want to change your nickname...

LEA 0.66

Added "auto-repair" feature (tool icon in the compiler message box).


Of course you can do a bit more, with the HAC [1] compiler embedded in the LEA [2] editor, than just "Hello World".
Here, a screenshot with the amazing Ackermann recursive function.


The LEA project is available here.

La production de Francs repart !

Crise du REPO oblige, la Fed a rejoint les autres grandes banques centrales dans le mode "Ctrl-P".
La petite BNS suit le mouvement pour éviter une appréciation du Franc par rapport aux autres monnaies comme l'Euro ou le Dollar.

Le résultat (notez l'ascension sur la seconde moitié de 2019):
