Oh, I don't want to turn this post in a discussion around 
economics, but I believe, as him, that fractional reserve IS 
fraud ... White and Selgin simply missed the points, but, again, 
who cares at the end ...

Regarding hyperinflation, well, we are since 2008 in a debt 
deflation, Japan history is here to tell us that US and EU are 
doomed to a long travel throw low or negative rates...
today 60 billions/months of FED "it's not a QE it's a different 
things!" are there to testify that ... everything is under 
control ...

But at the end, as usual, a default WILL happen, and we will see, 
if the Austrians fate will be legend or heavy truth ...

End of economic rant, but, hey, I've enjoyed the digression!
