Good thing that the U.S. military is not "revenue constrained" thanks to the wonders of fiat money. Otherwise, the voters would have to pay for these wars in real time out of their current incomes and savings. The lightbulb might go off in their head.

Sad isn't it, the New Silk Road is about trade, not war, and a better life for Afghans. But with the US you get war instead.

There's a good side and bad side to fiat money, like everything else. We hope to harness its good side.
