Music

I know, odd that music would be the first section. Listening to classical music while you study something will help reinforce the reading in your mind. Hell, light a scented candle if you have one. There’s a bit more nuance that we can detect in music than smell though. These are some very short selected writings on the genre of classical music. It is by no means meant to be a thorough overview of the genre, but it should give you same basic concepts to work with.

  • Where does gold come from? – David Lunney
  • Rise of the Persian Empire and Cyrus the Great
    • Cyrus the Great conquers the Lydia kingdom and gold currency is introduced to the Achaemenidians. The daric becomes the world\’s first international currency and the Achaemenidian dynasty consolidates nearly all gold assets ever produced during antiquity. King Croesus of Lydia was the first to have issued a double currency standard, allowing him to benefit from what would later be known as Gresham\’s Law.
  • Alexander the Great: a very competent expert in finances
    • Alexander the Great\’s confiscated 4,000 talents of gold (\$\$5,665,187,500 @ \$1,294.90/t oz) from Darius III after the Battle of Gaugamela. Greece experiences the world\’s first instance of inflation, driving up the wages of soldiers which inhibited the ability to conquer additional gold.
  • History Summarized: The Roman Republic
  • Gold in the Ancient World
  • History Summarized: The Roman Empire
    • By the time of Diocletin, Roman coinage became excessively debased due to military costs. Silver minting was abandoned. The only sector of the economy being paid in (debased) gold solidus were barbarian mercenaries hired by various emperors. The gold came from a combination of sources: the defeat of Licinius, heavy capital taxation on senators and merchants. and pagan temples. Roman engineering and it\’s massive slave pools were able to perform silver and gold extraction out of Europe and conquered territories at a level that would not be seen again until the Industrial Age. Coinage debasement becomes a matter of policy during the Republic and Imperial phases of Rome, ending in massive hording of older coins by citizens.
  • History Summarized: The Byzantine Empire
    • The rise of Christianity significantly disrupts the frankincense trade, causing a gold deflation across the Incense Route. (A part of the Silk Road ecosystem) During the peak of this instability, an Incense Road merchant named Muhammad unifies the tribes of the Saudi peninsula under his new faith Islam. His father-in-law, Abu Bakr, becomes Islam\’s chief enforcer and conquers former Roman colonies around the Mediterranean. Byzantium and the Muslims engage in perpetual conflict via the Crusades, redistributing the flow of gold along the larger Silk Road ecosystem and away from Europe.
