COUNTERING THE COUNTERFEITERS

Kavan Ratnatunga writes: "I found a very interesting document on
the long history and current state of counterfeits.  It makes
interesting reading as one ponders the effectiveness of sanctions
on North Korea for their Nuclear test. They will just print more US$!"

"Pyongyang may have reached new heights of perfection in producing
fake $100 bills. The North Koreans have acquired equipment from
Europe that can detect counterfeit notes, according to Western
intelligence officials . Using this state-of-the-art equipment, the
North Koreans will soon be able to produce notes that are even
harder to detect than their $100 "Supernotes" now in circulation."

[Actually, we've mentioned this paper before in The E-Sylum (see
the link below).  But it is topical now that North Korea is in the
news.  -Editor]
