So what your saying is you should use what you earn for something dumb. Even know you need for a stormy bad or hurricane.

Con

The Government runs on taxes. If there were no taxes the world would be in complete anarchy, with no funding and support from the government. Criminals would loot and pillage cities, as the taxes pay the police and other agencies. There would be no education, as the taxes also fund the teacher's salaries and the school board. No public libraries as the government fund those as well. Most of the programs that help people in poverty are also funded by the government.

Yes you are right that does cause inflation and tax is a useful method of reducing inflation. Tax is also useful for giving value to the currency because you are forced to pay taxes in that unit of currency. However, my point still remains that governments do not run on taxes, and the Con argument is factually wrong.

"Governments in charge of countries with their own sovereign currency are able to produce that currency at will" - That's how you get inflation and screw up the economy. It would be preferable to not produce new currency whenever possible.

The Con argument is factually wrong. Government does not run on taxes. Governments in charge of countries with their own sovereign currency are able to produce that currency at will. Where do American dollars come from if not from the American government?
