Re: Why can't Latinum be replicated?

Well, how many people in the 24th century have jobs? Maybe most of the human population, or even most of the Federation's population, are idle. There must be a reason humans don't use currency-based economics. Maybe it's the replicator.

Why do the Ferengi have jobs, then, if they have replicator technology, too? Maybe it's purely cultural, with latinum as a useful way to keep track of who is "winning" economically.
