  • โ€ช12/10/1690 โ€” The Dough ๐Ÿ’ตโ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชSo, a colonial war just kicked off in your back yard and youโ€™re hilariously in debt from of it.โ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชWhat do you do? How bout issue the first paper money in Western civilization? ๐ŸŒŽโ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชWhy? Well, thatโ€™s exactly what the General Court of the Colony did today in 1690.โ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชNow, remember that this is the era of European powers shoving each other in the face while shouting, โ€œNo, *I* saw North America first!โ€ โš”๏ธ This brings us to King Williamโ€™s War, the first of 6๏ธโƒฃ shit-show conflicts between France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท & England ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง.โ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชIn April 1690, a guy named William Phips (who would later, as the colonyโ€™s royal governor, set up and shut down the Salem Witch Trials ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ) and 2,000 men were commissioned to sail north and take over Quebec. Likely having been distracted by the lively local hockey ๐Ÿ’ and delectable poutine ๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿง€, Phipsโ€™ troops got beat. Bad. So, they set sail back to Boston.โ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชProblem time ๐Ÿ•ฐ! Even though they got their asses handed to them, Phipsโ€™ men demanded payment in full ๐Ÿ’ธ, which the General Assembly could no longer guarantee because... theyโ€™d just gotten their asses handed to them. They were supposed to take their own cuts from Quebec; not expect it from Boston ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธโ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชThis is why you only hire contractors based on referrals, people! ๐Ÿงฐโ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชKnowing that they would a) never get the bread from Mother England for a battle theyโ€™d flippinโ€™ lost ๐Ÿ‘Ž and b) probably get their heads cut off over a special tax to pay for this crap ๐Ÿ”ช, the GC voted to write Phips and his troops promissory notes for ยฃ7,000 that they could later turn into the treasury for more traditional gold, silver or copper ๐Ÿ’ฐโ†”๏ธ๐Ÿงพโ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชThis was a huge moment for the western hemisphere because the weight of those ยฃ7,000 came from the government rather than a person ๐Ÿ›. To clarify, China had used this as a common practice for centuries, as had Italian city-states. โ€ฌ
    โ€ช.โ€ฌ
    โ€ชBut the assumption that western colonial governments couldnโ€™t pay NOW and that itโ€™d be okay as long as all 2,000 of the guys didnโ€™t try to cash in their notes AT ONCE?
