  •  Money is a measurement tool. It's like an inch or (10+ / 0-)

    a centimeter. It symbolizes value, but it is not worth anything in itself.
    Imagine hoarding inches or centimeters.

    But, you say, people trade and exchange money.  True.  People also trade and exchange used postage stamps.
    Some people like to accumulate stuff.  For some people it becomes obsessive.
    It's fine. It's not a problem. Unless the rest of us make their obsessions significant. It doesn't matter if people hoard money, as long as the Congress doesn't exploit that by claiming there's not enough money to do what needs doing.

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
