Episode 176 44. War of Gold and veins #3(8)
“You mean you need goblin dollars to buy gold?”
“Yeah, wouldn’t that create a demand for Goblin Dollars?”
It was up to the empire to decide how to sell the gold they had anyway.
If the Empire only accepts goblin dollars for gold trading, the reality is that other factions have no choice but to follow it.
“Certainly, we have a lot of gold, so there is no other way. There is no other way than to accept the Goblin Dollars.”
“Besides, Goblin Dollars can be exchanged for ducats, so they won’t be too reluctant to accept them.”
The emperor shook his head as if he understood.
“That’s a good way, but is there a better way than that? It’s like paying taxes in Goblin Dollars like here, or something like that.”
“There are plenty of other ways than to force the gold trade into goblin dollars.”
There are many ways to activate Goblin Dollars if you search.
Rockefeller decided to mention this among them.
“One of them is this. The reality is that the financial business of the continent is currently monopolized by Goblin Bank. Although I am a historical figure within the Empire, I and the Lyon Guild are only one country’s banco contractor in terms of the continent as a whole.”
The king did not deny that.
Certainly, if you look at the continent as a whole, as Rockefeller said, there were many financial businesses that the goblins were engaged in.
“The amount of money they lent to various factions would be enormous. And they are all paying interest in ducats.”
The goblins’ loan business also played a role in the background of the goblins’ currency becoming the continent’s common currency.
So Rockefeller was going to take advantage of that.
“It’s enough to make that interest and principal payable in Goblin Dollars in the future.”
“ah… … There was a way.”
Then the emperor questioned.
“But, would you rather get Goblin Dollars instead of Ducats from the Goblin Bank?”
“Goblin Dollars can be exchanged for Ducat at any time. Because we have the most gold on the continent, and we guarantee it. Nevertheless, if we insist on using the ducats made by Gigi rather than Goblin Dollars, which are good to use in the Goblin Bank, then we can force them.”
The emperor was still in doubt.
“How can I force them?”
Do we really need to listen to Rockefeller in Goblin Bank?
“I don’t know. Would the goblins have any reason to listen to this request?”
Then I came up with a way.
“Are you going to use that goblin chief who is holding you hostage?”
Rockefeller shook his head at those words.
“It is not. It’s not easy to entice goblins who are sloppy or rolling like that. Rather, they only have a strong antipathy towards us.”
The Emperor continued, remembering Goldman, who had left after swearing at the former Rockefeller.
“I don’t think there were any good feelings. What are you thinking?”
Rockefeller first smiled at that question.
“Your Majesty, do you know about the personality traits of goblins?”
“A personality trait?”
Speaking of goblins, they were cunning and quick to calculate, so they felt more like a usurer than a human being.
“If it’s a personality trait, are you talking about cunning?”
“Of course, there are things like that, but rather than that, in front of money, reason is more important than emotion.”
“ah… … .”
Guys who have no enemies and no allies in front of money.
Therefore, he did not act emotionally in the transaction, and thus far, Goblin Bank has been able to establish itself as the continent’s first bank.
“Because I had a bad thing with the customer yesterday, I am not paying the money I entrusted to the customer who came today. Or if you have done ignorant actions such as erasing all existing transaction records just because you became a Cheoncheon Ji-won. Would the goblin banque remain the best banco on the continent?”
“From what I’ve heard, the goblins seem to have a clear distinction between life and death, even though they have bad personalities.”
“That is one of the great characteristics of goblins that sets them apart from other races. Even if something bad happened with someone yesterday, I thoroughly exclude those emotions and put only reason and calculations ahead of me in matters related to money.”
Apparently, the emperor shook his head.
“It seems so. But what does that have to do with it?”
“Before, the head of the Goblin Bank cursed me. But even Goldman would salivate at my offer. And the business certainly will. So I plan to go to Goldman and make an offer after that.”
“Yeah, it’s an offer I can’t refuse.”
The emperor didn’t even notice.
“Do you have any suggestions for them?”
“Yes. Currently, Goblin Bank has suffered astronomical losses from two investment failures. And you’ll have to pay us a lot of money to bring back the Goldman, who was just captured.”
Rockefeller continued without a break.
“If that happens, what will happen to the Goblin Bank?”
“Yeah… … It will be difficult.”
Rockefeller’s smile widened as if it was the correct answer.
“That’s right. It’s going to be difficult. Then there will be problems with the loan business they are running. If you have money right away, don’t you want to borrow that money and get interest?”
“ah… … .”
The Emperor was then able to guess what Rockefeller would offer.
“Are you going to lend them money?”
“you’re right. I’m going to lend them Goblin Dollars and get interest in Goblin Dollars.”
Most of the bancoes in Lyon Banco borrowed money from the ‘Bank of Los Medici’ run by the Los Medici family and used the money to make loans.
In other words, it was no different than saying that Rockefeller was going to put the Goblin Banks under me as well.
“But will they borrow money from here?”
Rockefeller grinned at the question.
“Your Majesty, if you don’t have money, you can’t do business with loans, so what else can they do?”
“But somewhere else… … .”
Before the Gold and Blood War, the Goblin Bank was undoubtedly the continent’s first bank.
If there is a place to lend money to such a place, it is probably only the Los Medici family, the wealthiest family on the continent since the Gold Mac War.
“No. I don’t think there’s any other way than to borrow from here.”
“you’re right. There is no other way out. Where else would they borrow such a large amount of money and start a loan business if it wasn’t a local grocery store? In the end, the goblins have no choice but to borrow money from a big-time lender like me to make a loan.”
The loan shark above the loan shark.
That would be Rockefeller.
The Emperor had a lot of thoughts when he saw Rockefeller.
‘What kind of wealth does a person who plays sachae games get wealth while lending money to a place where they play shachae games?’
It wasn’t easy to guess.
After thinking in vain for a moment, the Emperor erased the thought and looked at Rockefeller and asked.
“Then are you going to make an offer by lending the money?”
“You saw it right. I’ll lend them money and make an offer to them. I want you to do business with goblin dollars in the future. And they will tell you to pay that interest only in Goblin Dollars.”
Rockefeller’s words continued uninterrupted.
“If they have any regrets for Ducat. That’s all I can say. If you bring Goblin Dollars, I will exchange them for Ducats without any problem.”
“Aren’t they still suspicious?”
To that question, Rockefeller put this wedge.
“Your Majesty, we have the most gold in the Empire. If we had any trouble with our gold reserves, the goblins would of course be suspicious. But that’s not the case, so goblins have no choice but to believe.”
The emperor narrowed his eyes and thought.
Whether that’s right or not.
In any case, it was undeniable that Rockefeller, who printed goblin dollars, had the most gold on the continent.
“I guess so. But it’s the world that you can’t be sure of.”
The king’s words continued.
“Are you going to meet the head of the Goblin Bank?”
“Yes, I should go and make an offer. There will probably be good results.”
“I am skeptical. Let’s hope for good results.”
Even if you don’t know, if you actively accept the goblin dollar in the goblin bank.
It was obvious that the goblin dollar would become the continental currency to replace the ducat.
‘I wish I could.’
45. Prison Agreement (1)
Rockefeller, separated from the emperor, immediately went to visit the head of the Goblin Bank, who was imprisoned in prison.
Goldman, the head of the Goblin Bank, who was screaming out his throat, saw the Rockefeller who had come, and his teeth were sharpened.
“What are you here for! What did you come here to laugh at?”
To Goldman, who was rolling his eyes at him, Rockefeller answered without expression.
“Not that. I came here because I just needed a casual discussion.”
“A daily discussion? yap! Who is the bastard who imprisoned me here, what kind of discussion!”
“I’m not working, so get out of here! Just looking at your face makes me vomit!”
Rockefeller shook his head lightly at him, whose voice was constantly rising.
‘It sounds like a no-no.’
“Let’s hear it first. It won’t hurt to go in.”
But Goldman’s attitude was still bad.
“Dogs talk in every corner of your house! If you don’t get me out of here right now! Then it’s all over!”
“All the Wyverns are dead, do you still have a lot to say?”
The news that the Wyverns were all dead Goldman was perplexed.
“What are you talking about. Is it all dead?”
“Did you not know? Haha, I was arrested, so how do I know what’s going on outside? Lee Han handled it neatly. Of course, there was also damage on our part, but you don’t have to worry about it too much, as we will be able to claim it on our own.”
“… … .”
The world’s most expensive army has evaporated in vain… … .
Goldman was simply outrageous.
‘How is that… … .’
“Does it make sense? How much money did we spend there… … .”
Rockefeller, who shook his head once more at Goldman, continued.
“Why did you do such a stupid thing?”
“Is that what you’re talking about? For whom we have suffered the loss!”
“This is a bit embarrassing. Why are you asking us about your investment failure?”
“During the beer bubble, you threw the beer first, so we lost money.”
“That’s right, though. That doesn’t mean we’re going to compensate you just because we’ve suffered a loss, right?”
“You do that. It’s an investment failure anyway, so it’s your responsibility, so listen to my suggestions.”
