  • Inflation is a problem that has been happening for some time. There is a solution, though. Each person should get $5,000 (freshly printed for them) when they turn 18. That is the only money printed by the Treasury. When that person dies, $5,000 is taken out of circulation by the Treasury from taxes and destroyed. Therefore, the money supply will be forever tied to the population, as it should be. This could only work in a free-market libertarian state.

It's not exactly that big of an issue with the high interest rates.

@themightyindividual That wouldn't do anything at all. Paper money is a really small share of the total wealth of the country.
