Sticking with money, here's something on quantitative easing from today's Boston Globe by Harvard's Kenneth Rogoff (which I confess I mostly didn'twalterhorn
Soundest version from the Bank of England itself in its Bulletin (on Net) "Money creation in the Modern Economy ", an example of gamekeeper turned poacher

Welcome to the Land Cafe's Idea Factory -- an Open Society forum created to serve people and groups around the world who are interested to find ways for our societies to come to grips with the troubling but important issues of value capture and land tax reform in an age in which important public services remain substantially under-funded. The Cafe offers a free, public, flexible repository for documents (see Files just to your left) and key links to other programs and sites (see Links), and creative discussion space for people and groups who feel that we need to do a lot better in these two important areas of society.
* Best way to access this forum and its tools is through the Land Cafe home page at http://www.landcafe.org.
* We have created a Facebook group for the café at < http://tinyurl.com/landcafe-facebook -- with the idea that it can aid our exchanges and put a human face to the communications (not always quite sufficiently appreciated).
The Cafe is a public service of The Commons. We welcome diversity of background, culture and views -- and stay open 24 hours a day for people who wish freely to exchange ideas and information about it in a plain-speaking but ever civil way. Like any good cafe, it is important that we be good listeners as well as interesting talkers. (The Cafe is moderated to ensure that we stick to topic and behave civilly.)
