(The facts speak for themselves.)
 

Money Supply, Prices, Inflation, etc.

 

  "The best guarantee of the full weight & assured fineness of coins can, in the nature of the case, be given by the government itself, since it is known to & recognized by everyone & has the power to prevent & punish crimes against the coinage.   Governments have therefore usually accepted the obligation of stamping the coins necessary for trade.   But they have so often & so greatly misused their power that economizing individuals eventually almost forgot the fact that a coin is nothing but a piece of precious metal of fixed fineness & weight, for which fineness & full weight the honesty & rectitude of the mint constitute a guarantee." --- Carl Menger 1871 _Grundsätze der Volkswirtschaftslehre_/_Principles of Economics_ (translated by James Dingwall & Bert F. Hoselitz) pp 282-283
(Except that now, after repeated lessons from ancient Lydia, Rome, Yuan dynasty China (since about 1260), Ming dynasty China, France, Germany, Britain, Greece, Argentina, Venezuela, the Keynesians & neo-Keynesians, everyone should now be aware that governments, rulers, politicians, bureaubums... ABSOLUTELY CANNOT BE TRUSTED to guarantee the full weight & assured fineness of coins, letters of credit, notes, bonds, nor of anything else.)

  "...the value of inactivity to most laborers is much less than is generally believed.   The occupations of by far the great majority of men afford enjoyment, are thus themselves true satisfactions of needs, & would be practised, although perhaps in smaller measure or in a modified manner, even if men were not forced by lack of means to exert their abilities.   The exercising of his abilities is a need for every normal human being." --- Carl Menger 1871 _Grundsätze der Volkswirtschaftslehre_/_Principles of Economics_ (translated by James Dingwall & Bert F. Hoselitz) pp 171-172
