  1. It’s already been tried.
    Doesn’t work
    And that is very easy to see
    In our global experience
    Using the hoardable form of money.
    I know that your use of Central Bank money
    Is young.
    And I know you can see
    By just looking at ALL the other countries
    How The hoardable money doesn’t work
    And just leads to LOTS
    of problems.
    And a huge waste of effort
    And Money.
    You will lose in the game
    Of hoardable money.
    See ShiBboLeTh, The Tale of Two Secret Passwords and Money
    For the way out.
    Partner with The US
    President Trump knows me.
    He will help you do
    The Right Thing
    And make The Switch
    To using un-hoardable National Currency.
    Mohammad would approve
    And so would all the other religions
    Which condemn usury.
    See ShiBboLeTh for that definition.
