    Funny. Definitely funny. But there is a very valid concern that our fiat currency (currency not backed by anything other than the word of our u.s. government) is in dangerous territory. Just because inflation hasn’t kicked in yet doesn’t mean that it isn’t a long term issue. History has a long list of governments that have tried to inflate their way out of problems and it has never worked before.

    “I’ll tell you what I think about the way this city treats her soundest men today: By a coincidence more sad than funny, It’s very like the way we treat our money.

    The noble silver drachma that of old we were so proud of, and the recent gold coins that rang true, clean-stamped and worth their weight throughout the world, have ceased to circulate.

    Instead, the purses of Athenian shoppers are full of shoddy silver plated coppers. Just so, when men are needed by the nation, the best have been withdrawn from circulation.”

    Aristophanes, about 400 B.C.
