Only Gold and Silver are real money. Currency is debt. paper money is only a promissory note to pay back in real money. Credit cards should actually say “Debt cards”. It would be even better if these debt cards carried the interest rate on their faces to remind users how they are never going to come out of that vicious circle. Without reverting back to Gold and Silver standards our political-social-economic affairs will be held captive by those who control the power to make money from ‘thin air’.
