The automatic discipline imposed by the fact that they are in a common monetary unit and don’t have control over the money power means that the balanced budget restriction is less needed.” ~ James M. Buchanan
  13. “A currency serves three functions: providing a means of payment, a unit of account, and a store of value. Gold may be a store of value for wealth, but it is not a means of payment.

As you grow older, inevitably you develop a life outside the band. I think it would be tragic if you didn’t.” ~ Robert Smith
  19. “Having played many roles of scientific intellect I do have an empathy for that world.

Thus in slightly unorthodox circumstances, I became part of that struggle.” ~ S. R. Nathan
