  1. So true! I have made the same observation too. “Martin’s” Law is often proven in the first response to some of my comments!

  2. I get ‘what about the unfunded pensions?’

    • Yes that’s fairly common too. My reply is that it’s just not possible to have funded pensions for a sovereign currency issuer. There’s no point Govt saving up their own IOUs (money) just like there would be no point you or I saving our own IOUs.

      That usually makes them think a bit at least.
