Founded on the idea that some are more equal than others....
AMERICAN NATIONS, Colin Woodward
In the dark hours of the wars of liberation, the Continental Congress had no money to pay salaries to their
soldiers or to compensate the farmers for requisitioned food and livestock. Instead Congress gave all these people
government IOUs. This practice continued for years until, under the financial administration fo the notoriously
unethical banker Robert Morris, the state of Pennsylvania announced that it would no longer accpt the congressional
IOUs as payment for taxes. With no other money in circulation in much of the countryside, many poor families had
not choice but to sell the notes for whatever they could get, and wealthy speculators pruchased them for one-sixth
to one-fortieth of their face value.
Soon just over 400 individuals held over 96 percent of Pennsylvanias's war debt, and nearly half was controlled by
just 28 men, most of whom were Robert Morris's friends and business partners. Shortly thereafter, Morris and his
protege Alexander Hamilton took control fo federal financial policy, rigging it so as to lieterally turn their
friends' worthless paper into silver and gold.
Under Morris and Hamilton, the federal government would buy back tthe bonds for face value, plus 6 percent
interest, paid in precious metals raised by assesssing new federal excise taxes designed to fall most heavily on
the poor people who'd been forced to take the worthless congressional script in the first place.
But wait--there's more.
