It's customary to put a question mark in the thread title if it's speculation.

Lol. Not going to happen.

If the goal of those in government was to help the elderly, then maybe.  But this is not the case. The goal of much of the monetary policy is to protect and enhance the asset portfolios of the mega-rich that run the country, everything is a secondary.

The Federal Reserve, who create money, is a private company of which profits 6% for every dollar they create out of thin air.  Why would they encourage alternate, logic-based monetary systems or policies that would weaken their own power?  The banks have power over the government and it is one that is much more prevalent than elections, so they'll try to hang on to this until the collapse comes, which is inevitable, because our world economic policies are fundamentally flawed and continue to get changed only to benefit the few  people on top who actually pull the strings.

He is expected to unveil a proposal for a new type of retirement account that would initially leverage Treasury bonds for those Americans with jobs that do not offer a savings plan. They would eventually be able to roll the bonds into a traditional Individual Retirement Account.

don't have any savings?

yeah but the free market still dictates value. there is a reason why the USD used to be backed by gold (and no good reason why it isn't anymore). the military cant change the state of the economy (not in a good way).

What would be the point of a centralised decentralised currency?

It might be fun to watch it fight itself?
