You know what would be better than having a currency which relies on things that the people cannot control, to function properly ? A currency that
works in the following manner:
Say you have a loaf of bread. That has a cost associated with it, and at the moment, when its value goes up, faster than the value of the currency ,
you end up paying more currency for the bread than before right? Well stuff that. How about a currency that is ALWAYS worth the same amount, relative
to the cost of the goods you buy ? So , say your bread goes up in price? Who cares, because with your better currency , you will always be able to
hand over the same amount of money, regardless of the market worth of your bread. Wouldnt that be better?
Wouldnt preventing house prices going up and down all the time be a better way of making things work? Wouldnt it be better if it was illegal to
charge more than a very small amount for what amounts to the basic right to shelter from the wind and the rain, rather than allowing droves of
citizens to be evicted , sent to live in tent cities?
Wouldnt it be better to prevent ANY of the market forces from becoming more powerful than the will of the people ? Why yes it would... will anything
be done about it... Hell no. Same problem over here in Britain.
