Fake Money

Once fake money is introduced into an economy, the people who print it have nearly-unlimited power to do whatever they’d like to remake the society as they want it to be. And this leaves few easily-traceable footprints other than inflation—and inflation may be convincingly explained to many as the result of other less-alarming causes. Indeed, few will be willing to believe that anyone could play a game at that level with their society, and will be glad to lay the blame on something other than what it really is.
