This is the last of four pages I wrote/drew in early 2008 for the second volume of a German anthology by the name of "Jazam!". Please note that the following comment was written in 2008 as well:

This page may sound a bit skewed these days. In my mind, the underlying point is still valid though (and probably more than ever):

(1) We still go out and trade goods against printed paper, and the value of that printed paper (or imprinted metal, or credit cards, or what have you) still depends on an expected value, not a material one (as far as I have heard, no actual bill is worth its expected value, while some coins are worth a bit more than what they're traded for - I've heard that the least-valued coin in German currency would be worth a bit more if you were to melt it and sell the metal it's made of - which is illegal, of course). And this sort of financial system won't go away that easily, even though banks may not trust each other these days.

(2) Immoral deeds are still rewarded financially. And I'm not talking about "banksters" here -- the real problems are arms trade and such, not dealing with non-existent money (in any sense of the words "real" and "immoral").

(3) The financial system's currently being salvaged, not changed. At least to some degree the public opinion seems to be that the system's failed, but then wanting to salvage it would be absurd. So we'd have to assume the system's in fact not failed. And in the most basic sense, I agree.

Pages from issue 0 and issue 1 are going to be uploaded daily.
