How did the Roman Empire fall to the Fiat currency?Submitted by SheldonFromDownUnder on Sun, 02/24/2013 - 09:26
I often hear that the Roman Empire was destroyed by the fiat currency. But I want to know more on the specifics, i.e. the behaviour of the Roman economy, major changes affecting the value of the Roman currency... the equivalent things that we know about the fiat currencies (esp. the dollar) of today.
Where is a good source of information out there that details the story of the Roman fiat economy? How it happened, why it happened... and what resulted from the fiat currency. I'm also all eyes for an explanation here in this thread!
