Spontaneous emergence in the evolution of money was founded on individual action. Government cannot proclaim something to be money. Money is a commodity which is demanded mainly as a medium of exchange.

The Federal Reserve Chairman, Bernanke, calls a fall in purchasing power of the dollar by over 95% stable. Interest rates have been pushed to zero.  Continual inflation is deliberate and designed. Bernanke pretends he knows what he is doing.
