  • Nicholas shared from The End of Money: Counterfeiters, Preachers, Techies, Dreamers--and the Coming Cashless Society by David Wolman
    In 1837 John Quincy Adams said that the only thing separating counterfeiters from bank directors is that the former are more skilled and modest. “It requires more talent to sign another man’s name than one’s own and the counterfeiter does at least his work in the dark, while the suspenders of specie payments brazen in the face of day, and laugh at the victims and dupes, who have put faith in their promises.”
