Bank of England
Yo7 those of you hip/boring enough to actually read the MoF updates. Apologies if you were expecting more updates but I prefer to be concise like this. If you missed the start of term report, drop to the bottom and just go to the previous article, simple! First of all, the big reveal, by taking a gold price of £211gold^-1, we have a total asset value of £2654808.43!
For those of you with eagle eyes and top notch memories, you might notice this being £483598.76 more than I reported at the start of the term. Whilst I'd love to claim that I'm fantastic enough to increase our assets by neary half a million, unfortunately I can't. I made a slight accounting boo boo at the start of the term when I forget to check for pending donations. As £400k was being sent to the treasury org from the vaults, it didn't show up and I neglected to add it. However, we're still £84k up so nothing to sniff at. This increase is related to:
The Salts on Count Drakula producing roundabouts £15k
Tax on Dastardly Banking of around £17.5k
MM fishing with assumed profits of £21k (I am yet to sell the gold from this, however I've just multiplied the gold we bought by £11, the current profit per bar)
Taxes which have been hanging steadily around £5.5k-£6k a day which is nice, although some days are worse than others.
As a side note, I updated the value on my spreadsheet for the Country Accounts very early this morning, roughly 4am and in that time they appear to have gone up quite considerably, to the order of It takes a brave man to admit he's got no clue what happened so there we go. Either Dastardly Banking or Count Drakula have paid their dues into the treasury via tax and the graphs are on a delayed response or sleep deprived Butjam is terrible at taking down numbers. Hopefully it's the latter, as we're £18k worse off if it's the former!
Fancy graph so you think I know what I'm doing
In terms of what we've spent this term, it's been very little really
20k was spent by the MoD, not too excessive
The MoENT pilfered £6k
We've got 13 MPP's that cost us £120k, as Iran paid both sides to that one
That isn't too shabby, we've also loaned out (at the time of writing) 97 gold in training loans, we have already received back 10. Please write to me today if you would like a loan and I can send you up to 30 gold to assist you in taking advantage of the special offers. I came across a spreadsheet page that listed a lot more loans from previous terms that I was unaware of, not entirely sure how much of it needs completely scratching off. This could be worth chasing up as it could pay for a couple of MPP's, expect more news from whoever holds the keys next term!
Speaking of next term, I've just dropped a message to Chewie and Alice to ask them who their MoF for next term is, simply so that if they want to chop me out we can get a head start on explaining the layout of my documents, what's in progress etc. If they've elected to keep me on then this isn't a cause for concern but otherwise I'd like to shorten the delay as much as possible.
Honestly, if MWC would just let me label them this would get a lot easier
Well, I think I've summed most of it up, what we've made money from, where we've spent money and what will happen with the new term. A quick notice of apology for not getting my MM tracker off the ground, after a lot of deliberation (read, "Pestering CD and Frag") I've found that an auto solution would be quite a nuisance and require a 24/7 computer and internet connection. The general idea behind manual gathering just needs it's small infrastructure built, but considering it's crowdsource based and would mean I'm handing out money I'm a little reluctant to do so with this volatile market. Never mind, 'eh.
That's all for this month, bonus image coming up, lots of love,
your friendly neighbourhood Butjam
