This simple measure can abolish forever the crude and mercenary commercialism of the spiritual feast of Christmas.
The easy solution is for you to exchange heart-felt hand-shakes, hugs and/or kisses as may be appropriate and customary with the intended recipients of your largesse, and also exchange with each of them monetary notes of the same denomination, anything between say a dollar and a couple of hundred. All you have to do is make sure that the notes are of the same nominal figure as that on the paper which, after all, is all it is. Result?  Everyone is satisfied. Everybody both gives and receives, and neither party loses. What is more, the beneficiaries of your generosity are all as happy as you are to give, receive and not lose, which happiness, as you must know, wise Reader, is surely the true essence of giving. 
Just think; you go to your customary Christmas Ball, armed with but a single crisp note of 100 of whatever 'currency' your politicians inflict on you.  You swan around, as doubtless is your wont, smiling generously, exchanging your note for the same with your friends and even other lucky attendees, and you will leave with exactly the same, having earned a reputation as an open-handed, free-spending all-round good guy, and it will have cost you not a bean.  That, earnest Reader, is real 'economy'.
However, there is a caveat.  No matter how poor you may think yourself to be, please ensure you are not tempted to tender even one IOU in exchange for your donor's monetary note.  If you were to do so, this would undermine the whole miraculous solution, since for some sharp cookies your IOU will be equivalent to 'an offer', and 'an offer', though to normal humans merely theoretical, in their hands is the same as 'money' and would enable them by means of simple routine leveraging to reap billions per day from their banking system, thus earning themselves the reputation of sagacity, even genius, while in reality beggaring the rest of us.
To maintain their reputation for philanthropic generosity, this idea of course would clearly be unthinkable for any decent Rothschilds to engage in such trivia. However, with their few relatives and productive aides such as Dave*, Tone**, George***, Jose**** and Wolfie*****, they can exchange 100-quadrillion notes, backed by the authentic numerical  rubbish in their equally fictitious 'trusts'.  But please remember not to issue even one IOU, otherwise it will enable these creatures to extract those billions per day from the 'financial systems' to reinstate their cruel oppression.
Got that?  Then go to it.  There is no time to waste.  The festive Season is upon us.

Aged beyond belief, with a fund of experience which few could match and fewer envy, as a former member of Justice International, the author has all his adult life tried to differentiate between fact and fiction. The twin interests of cosmology (more...)
