The video for this discussion is available at the link in the title. Otherwise, go to YouTube channel slemayable to view the “Imaginary Things” video. It discusses Nations, Borders, Money, and Governments–all social constructs, things that we act on, but that have no physical existence. Please post comments regarding your own countries and these issues. They will become important in the latter part of the course and will be part of the final exam. All comments receive extra credit.

The stability of a government can effects a country’s inflation rates. Inflation rate rises as the stability and effectiveness of the government falls. This rise in inflation can decrease the value of a country’s currency.
