QUOTE OF THE DAY: “The government's account is overdrawn…”

“Today, people are beginning to understand that the government's
account is overdrawn, that a piece of paper is not the equivalent
of a gold coin, or an automobile, or a loaf of bread—and that if you
attempt to falsify monetary values, you do not achieve abundance,
you merely debase the currency and go bankrupt.”

—Ayn Rand, “Moral Inflation,” The Ayn Rand Letter
