I believe the amount of currency per capita should remain fairly constant, in 
order to facilite the exchange of goods.

If the capita is growing, and the currency supply is not, then there is 
obviously less to go around. Scarceness of currency causes poverty. There is 
ample history to demonstrate this.

Thus where our capita is growing, so should our currency supply. In fact, it 
really should be in lock-step. If we have a decrease in capita, the currency 
supply should be likewise reduced. I don't see how this would be so difficult 
to regulate. You make the decision once, up front, to regulate it based on a 
mathematical formula that takes population (from a census perhaps) and 
whatever other economic indicators you choose and go with it. Once a year you 
make an adjustment, on queue. No big board of directors doing whatever 
adjustment they "feel" "might" help (or suit their own agendas)...
