Counterfeiting against algerian currency


Nations have used counterfeiting as a means of warfare. The idea is to overflow the enemy’s economy with fake bank notes, so that the real value of the money plummets. Great Britain did this during the American Revolutionary War to reduce the value of the Continental Dollar. The counterfeiters for the British were known as “shovers,” presumably for the ability to “shove” the fake currency into circulation. Two of the most well-known shovers for the British during the Revolutionary War were David Farnsworth and John Blair. They were caught with 10,000 dollars in counterfeits when arrested. George Washington took a personal interest in their case and even called for them to be tortured to discover further information. They were eventually hanged for their crimes.

It does does represent a weakness. If others can duplicate your currency, then you are not sovereign.

    dieu protège nous de ces voyous qui veulent tuer tout un peuple pour l’argent .mais je reproche ceci en premier lieu aux cercles des mafieux qui se sont alliés à certains de nos gouverneurs et de’autres ennemies étrangers à l’Algérie.
    les pratiques quotidiennes de nos chefs sont bien une illustration de ça !!! raby yestterna

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Outstanding Blog!
