In my previous posts I stated several times that a currency should be equally spendable, savable and earnable. But I never tried to justify that idea, or explain why we should pursue those features as opposed to others. So the purpose of this post and the next is to explain that position. It is impossible to say what features the currency should have without some underlying value system to motivate the existence of currency in the first place. So in this post I will lay down the values I think should guide a sound currency administration. And in the next post I will use those values to explain my view that an equally spendable, savable and earnable currency should be our primary objective.
