> This difficulty lowers the likelihood of government fiscal responsibility and increases the likelihood of devestating inflation.

I share this worry too, but it's not like there's currently any political appetite for fiscal responsibility. I wonder if the threat of inflation and currency volatility would actually serve as better stick, than what we currently have which is continuing to run up a massive debt which will be terrible for our children?
