Well someone needs to make up a funny transcript then.

Ron: "you see this?", *shoves silver eagle into Bens face*, "let's have a currency competition!" *boyish grin*, "My silver, your fiat"

Ben: "Allright, bring it on, dude!" *whips out 100 usd bill*, "this is worth more".

Ron: "Arbitrary crap! How is 100 USD worth more than 1 oz of silver. I'll still be able to buy 20 pounds of groceries with this coin in 30 years time, when your 100 will buy a carrot or two!"

Ben: "Ha! That's the problem with your ancient silver money, it's just too inflexible: if we see price inflation, we just print more money to make up for it", *takes pen, adds "00" to the 100 to make it 10,000*, ", see, now I can buy even more groceries than you. And that's how we grow the economy: by increasing consumption."

Ron: "You're only growing the economy on paper! You're inflating the monetary supply and the purchasing power of a few, but everyone else holding a 100 USD bill will have less real purchasing power. This destroys savings, while 1 ounce of silver will always be 1 ounce of silver. Additionally, silver has industrial use:", *melts silver and casts a spoon, stirs coffee*

Ben: *puts feet on table, sets 10,000 USD bill on fire, lights cigar*

When the extremes meet... Might have been an interesting discussion indeed, but I bet neither changed his mind.
