same OLD problem

"See how the faithful city has become a prostitute!
She once was full of justice;
righteousness used to dwell in her — but now murderers!
Your silver has become dross,
your choice wine is diluted with water.

Your rulers are rebels, partners with thieves;
they all love bribes and chase after gifts.
They do not defend the cause of the fatherless;
the widow’s case does not come before them." -- Isaiah 1:22-23

Age-old problem: Debase the currency, and all the commodities will begin to be "debased" as well. Because your "rulers" are partners with thieves.
