"Inflation is a man-made scrourge, made possible by the fact that most men do not understand it. It is a crime committed on so large a scale that its size is its protection: the integrating capacity of the victims' minds breaks down before the magnitude - and seeming complexity- of the crime, which permits it to be committed openly, in public. For centuries, inflation has been wrecking one country after another, yet men learn nothing, offer no resistance, and perish ..."
-- Ayn Rand "Philosophy - Who needs it", (chapter entitled "Egalitarianism and Inflation", 1974, p125) (Don't like this quote; display another one!)
