Luther on Devaluating Currency

"Today we may apply the Apostle's words [Romans 2:2-3] first to those who without cogent cause inflict exorbitant taxes upon the people, or by changing and devaluating the currency, rob them, while at the same time they accuse their subjects of being greedy and avaricious." - Martin Luther in the Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans

And they wouldn't figure out how to make a fortune doing it either.. And come out looking like the hero too..
