Yes, though unless one can keep an eye on the king full-time, that he's in plain sight means he can do a lot that won't be noticed.  Of course, some people will have a vested interested in watching him closely, such as the nobility or anyone with lots of money or resources he might pounce on.  But the rest of us will be left to our own devices.

Oh, I am curious.  (And please don't lecture me on this.  It's bad form.)  I just don't have the time right now to watch a video -- and my Internet time is quite limited.  Also, I have literally dozens of books on banking and money I want to read (and hundreds on economics in general).  There's no reason, at the moment, to move this up the queue, is there?
