From what Kenneth Palmerton wrote:
This side of the pond we have an institution called the
National Physical Laboratory. This body has been charged by the State for some
time to decide the nature and dimensions of our measurements of weight and
length. No one, to my knowledge, questions their conclusions.
should it be difficult for a similar institution to tell us the amount of
money we need in circulation at any particular Time ?
Changing the "amount of money in
circulation in any particular time" is the ability to print money. This is
what I call fraud. Printing money is fraud. If I were to print
money, I would be put to jail. Having a group of politicians or
bankers doing it is no different.
Having a National Physical Laboratory is a
good thing to determine standards. Let's imagine the National
Physical Laboratory would tweak the weight and length by changing the
number ounces in a pound or the number inches in a foot, or some
other clever mechanism. Some individuals closely linked National Physical
Laboratory would benefit greatly to have certain values tweaked to their
advantages when writing bidding contracts and other business
I am certain the population would question the
soundness of the National Physical Laboratory in such scenario. Having an
institution to determine the amount of money needed in circulation at any
particular time is the same thing. Besides, there is already such an
intuition: it is called a Central Bank or a Federal Reserve
