  •  Fact is, dollars are not good to eat. What's (7+ / 0-)

    important is that dollars circulate through the economy and, certainly, whether it's a rocket or a car that is being built, the dollars go out in wages and continue moving. Not so the dollars the Wall Street hoarders pass back and forth amongst each other like so many volley balls.
    Money is like language. One person's use of it does not reduce another's ability to use it. However, just as speech can be restricted by cutting out someone's tongue, exchange and trade of goods and services can be severely interrupted by artificially rationing the medium of exchange.
    Why would Congress, the body tasked with managing the currency, want to do that? It makes them feel important.
