    Beg to differ.  I agree that politicians are inherently untrustworthy, but you prefer to allow BANKS to make those decisions?  After they've just spent the last decade proving how corrupt and incompetent they are?  Or perhaps you prefer to put power in the hands of the military?

    Issuance and management of currency is and has always been a function and responsibility of government.  In our particular government, that translates as "politicians", freely elected and purportedly subject to the whims of the People.  Any other option is a frank abdication of government power to unaccountable private individuals or corporations whose interests are by no means congruent with those of the people they, ahem, SERVE.
