The point of the Bancor was to have fixed exchange rates but also deal with the trouble of trade imbalances, which are a problem on a fixed exchange rate. On a fixed exchange rate, trade deficits are a problem because it means you are running out of the reserve currency, so you need a trade surplus to supply them. But the burden falls on the deficit country (who will endanger their peg if they run out of reserves) and not on the surplus country (who is happily accumulating foreign reserves). Under the Bancor plan, the negative interest rate on holdings of Bancor would have encouraged surplus countries to spend down their holdings, moving towards trade balance.

Boyd said that a pilot going into aerial combat must know two things: the position of the enemy and the velocity of the enemy. Given the velocity of an enemy, a pilot is able to decide what the enemy is capable of doing. When a pilot knows what maneuvers the enemy can perform, he can then decide how to counter any of the other pilot’s actions. The Aerial Attack Study contained everything a fighter pilot needed to know.
