What is the difference between printing money and counterfeiting? There is none.
Counterfeiting is illegal because it is the false creation of value.Â The counterfeiter takes low-value paper and turns it into high-value money, which is fundamentally a claim on the real productive value of the economy that issues the currency and recognizes it as a proxy means of exchanging that productive value.
Counterfeiting is illegal because the counterfeiter creates no additional value–he creates only the proxy for value.Â Creating real value–adding meaningful goods or services to the economy–is tedious, hard work. How much easier to simply transform near-worthless paper into a claim on actual goods and services.
If this is illegal, then would somebody please arrest the Board of the Federal Reserve for counterfeiting?Â The Fed has blatantly printed money without creating any real value to back up their added claims on productive value. Hence they are counterfeiting, pure and simple. A government based on rule of law would arrest these fraudsters and cons at the earliest possible convenience.
And while you’re drawing up the indictment, can you also charge them with counterfeiting competence and policy,Â as they have demonstrated the Peter Principle par excellence: the Board has risen to its highest level of incompetence. Their counterfeit policies have wreaked incomparable damage on the real productive economy.
