Article Table of Contents

I’m going to weave together talk of land value, and financing, and some of the primitives1 around financial products.

How much would you pay for a box that lives in your mailbox and delivers $1000 on the first of every month?

Would you pay at least $5000, if you felt really confident that it worked, as expected, as advertised?

  1. I’ll be using in the sense of ‘constituent, base components’ rather than ‘backwards or colonial’ sense. 

  2. This is a multi-line footnote. I can have a long single line of text cross the page and it still renders correctly. I need to hit [tab][tab] when starting another line.

    feel free to include a quote!

    { pizza_status: :not_enough }

    It can include all sorts of formatting! And images! an image 

  3. I would never, ever, admit to using the bathroom and browsing my phone, saying “yeah, I’ll come back to that” and never do.
