A Quote by E. C. Riegel on money, politics, money-making, prosperity, wealth, govern, government, control, and issuer

Money can be issued only in the act of buying, and can be backed only in the act of selling. Any buyer who is also a seller is qualified to be a money issuer. Government, because it is not and should not be a seller, is not qualified to be a money issuer.

E. C. Riegel
