Questions and Answers
How can central bank use direct intervention to change the value of a currency?
Propose a linkage between the U.S. Budget deficit, dollar value, and unemployment level.
3 completely independent questions in one post. A bit greedy, no?
A gold standard is the ultimate in fixed exchange rate:
As for the third question, unemployment is too high because the deficit is too low:
I live in India. For instance if I make 10 Bitcoin a month, that would amount to Rs.7,18,900 (Exchange rate as on 30/11/13), which definitely exceeds any income tax limits. So how do I pay tax for this as an individual with only a savings bank account? Under what kind of tax does this type of earning fall?
You have to file your returns and pay taxes as per slab rates. In which mode you are earning is not important. How much you are earning per year (after converting your income into Indian Rupees) has to be shown and pay taxes.
If you are earning Bitcoins for the work you have done, then it becomes your professional income and same has to been shown in the Income Tax Return Form ITR-4 under the Head "Income From Profession or Business".
The tax on the same will be RS. 75,993 (Tax on Rs.7,18,900)

In regards to making small profits (say a 5-8% return), isnt this a bit easy? I'm probably expressing some naivety here, so BTC users please express what I seem to not understand.
(I KNOW the IRS and many governments have declared wars on bitcoins please don't tell me any lectures or give comments like that).
Sure why not.
Is it any different from buying stocks when they're low and selling them when they're high?
Of course, the question always arises, will the exchange rate EVER be better than the one you bought at? You never actually know that for a fact.
