    it should be noted that currency is only one part of the money supply

    there are literally billions of dollars that only exist in a computer screen

    It's the economic equivalent of saying you want to go back to the outhouse. who needs toilets with their fancy running water? A hole in the ground, that's for me to poop on.

    i dont know if people really remember how life was back on the gold standard but they had wild booms and bust, every 10 or 20 years. it wasn't all sunshine and roses in 1920 or 1870

    I agree; we need to go completely digital. Get rid of hard currency.

    ...then you can totally devalue the money by printing tons of it and make it all worthless!

    in theory... possibly. in practice the amount of US currency that exists in the world is a huge amount and printing (relatively speaking) a little bit more, is not such a tragedy.
