THE ECONOMICS OF HEADS.
OK. Let’s pretend this is a serious question rather than “Maybe I can get Doolittle to laugh.”
Heads are heavy and expensive. (About ten pounds).
Scalps are light and expensive, but easy to fake.
Shrunken heads are costly to produce.
Skull pyramids are costly to produce.
Therefore shrunken heads make an exceptional substitute for a ‘gold standard’. So, buy-in for the franchise, (the number of shares you acquire) can best be paid in shrunken heads.
The skull pyramids are just status symbols that demonstrate one’s contribution to the common good.
For an extra ten points please explain how Inflation can be affected by shrunken-head backed currency, and how inflation can be limited.
