The second great class of experiments with money following World War I involved various attempts to do away with it. They were to cause, directly or indirectly, as many deaths as the war itself.

No government today is committed to realising these ideals and, there cannot be a repeat of the scale of the crimes and murders committed in its name.

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains.’
