government spending, with massive debt in a printed, fiat, low-interest, currency is very easy. Leftists and social engineers particularly like it.
It was Bush the Younger who really kicked DC Metro into high gear when he supersized the deep state security apparatus.
The value of a currency is determined by what it will buy not a government “fiat”. That is an incorrect though common misunderstanding about what currency is. It is a FAITH currency.
It matters not what the government says a currency is worth just the fact that the user has faith that it is worth something.
When the currency is truly a fiat currency it will be replaced by a more trusted instrument: gold, silver, jewels, property, etc.
