counterfeit money! man! wouldn't that be THE answer. imagine - you could float just a few bills here and there, small bills, so it saves you a few bucks and costs corporations money. i don't know - i'm not sure costing corporations money is a crime any more.

If people don't trust the currency, they will insist on something else, like silver or gold. That would be very bad for you and me.
