Abstract:

Stabile penger

Jeg skrev denne artikkelen for DLFs valgavis 2013.

En harmonisk og voksende velstand forutsetter et stabilt næringsliv som har mulighet for å drive langsiktig planlegging. Dette forutsetter igjen stabile penger. Penger er et byttemedium, målestandard og lager for økonomisk verdi. Penger forenkler arbeidsdeling ved at man bytter penger med varer, i stedet for å bytte varer med andre varer. Penger integerer dermed hele økonomien gjennom prissetting av varer og tjenester ved bruk av en felles målestandard.
