I have been paying attention, that is why I bring it up.
When there is nothing backing currency, the only thing that determines it's value is supply and demand. The more the supply the less the demand. The less the demand the lower the value. The less the value of the dollar the less materiels you can buy with a dollar on the global market hence the more $/item you have to pay. That is inflation. Printing money doesn't solve the issue because it devalues the money even more.
Hence my response, you can't just print money... that causes inflation. Which doesn't really solve anything. It is just a way to shift wealth to the printers of the new money as it causes the value of the money in circulation already to decrease. I guess I should have said shouldn't and not can't.
If you want to loosely paraphrase the situation, it is a way for the government to tax you further as they are sucking the value from the money you get to keep and transferring it to the new money just printed.
