Have you ever asked yourself why it’s illegal to forge money?
On the surface it seems like a victimless crime. But if you understand who the victim is then you understand that the governments printing of money has the same effect on a scale no money forger could ever achieve.
The victim is everyone who has money as inflating the supply artificially steals value from the supply in your bank account. That’s inflation. And it should be a crime when the government does it because it’s effect on us is far worse than anyone forging a few bank notes.
