Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think it's one of those 'When you have a hammer, everyone looks like a true Scotsman' arguments.

Most of these suggestions - including Martin Hay's disaster - confuse the various functions of money in not very insightful ways.

I think it would be interesting to have currencies that make all the different functions explicit, so you would know for sure whether your transaction was based on a claim of future resources, or executive rationing, or a simple power play, or any of the other things that people get up to while trying to hoard and/or spend imaginary tokens.
