Is there an argument in there...somewhere? OK, reliable transportation system...and point is? At least argue something. Truth is in America the best transportation (bridges, canals, roads, etc.) came about through the private market. In fact by the time of the WBTS, most states had changed their constitutions to forbid "internal improvements", due their subsidizing such causing massive government debt.
No, centralized currency has actually come after a nation becomes prosperous, so not even a fallacy, just a lie. Further though, most nations (Roman Empire for example) have declined after doing away with real money.
