The Times: different era, same old problem

While I’m here, I can’t resist repeating this quote from the esteemed pages of The Times of London. I love the undertone of panic. The “mischchievous financial policy” relates to the Greenbacks issued by the state – it was this that helped them win the civil war:

“If this mischievous financial policy [the government issuing money], which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
