Pompous gibberish from one after whom a mental complex is aptly named.

Though he did have his short comings, you can't shoot the messenger here ! Economically speaking, he is right on ! ! !

anonymous, you proved you're an idiot and a communist again. You never disappoint, comrade.

Understanding context is important for quotes. Napoleon is referencing to the fiat failure of the French Assignat during the French Revolution.

Prior to the French Assignat, there was also the John Law and his Mississippi bubble.
