<<What's missing...is  what the newly printed money is put to use to do.>>

Don't think so.  I wrote:  " after an initial pre-inflation wage boost
(most important are a rise in the minimum and the guarantee of
employment).  True.  Did not specify how many hirees to this or that
industry but what was offered was the general proposition that all who want
work should have it and at a living wage.  Maybe the respondent has a
detailed plan as to where these jobs will be located and what they are to
do.  I would like to see it.

As for the snide against Marx and use of his quotes, I am after all a
Marxian on a Marxist listserve and, for the life of me, there is no one
that I would ever want to quote more.
