Gilded Age Greed and the Golden Bitcoin

Dr. Riste Simnjanovski is a permanent professor of public administration at California Baptist University. His latest published research explores digital assets in the public and private sectors.

In 1873, Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner co-published the novel Gilded Age: A Tale of Today. While the text isn’t as well-known as it should be, possibly as a result of a direct attack on American politics, it’s a brilliant piece of literature that Bitcoiners will find amusing. In any case, I strongly recommend readers to take a look at it. Correlations with what Americans face in 21st-century politics seem overwhelmingly historical. In my opinion, correlations with Bitcoin are easy to spot.
