it kind of work sin the vacuum man. since the gold standard was removed it's just paper, regardless
actually, it's not even paper anymore. Over 90% of money in the US are just computer bits and bytes.
for the last few years the treasury has been printing bills like they were going out of style which actually hurts the buck via inflation.
Inflation is built into the American banking/treasury system. If the current system is maintained than inflation will NOT go away. In fact inflation in the US is fought by creating more inflation. Paradoxical but true.
