John Higgs on reasons for burning money

British author John Higgs, perhaps the world's leading expert on the public burning of money, has a new blog post up on "Ten Reasons for Burning Money."

The first reason is "To Frighten," and Higgs writes, "This is also the reason why Hagbard Celine burns money in Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson's Illuminatus! Trilogy - although Hagbard Celine is considerably more gentlemanly about it."
