    should be gold-backed, nor did I say anything about
    Ron Paul.  This community is sometimes too quick to judge.  I was merely pointing out that we live under fiat currency.  People don't know this and I think it's important.  My students and I have lively discussions about it and they are grateful to know.  I, like you, assumed this community would be interested to know more about our system.

      years, and still don't really get it.  Currently reading Graeber's "Debt."  Fan of Henry George, Margrit Kennedy, Marjorie Kelly, Krugman.

      Great that you can get them discussing lively!
