When will it become illegal for politicians to print money

If politicians are allowed to print money to cheat the system, why are we not? Over the past 50 years, it seems as though people have forgotten how economies function. Some economies do well and prosper, some economies do badly and fail. If it fails, the politicians must answer to their citizens why they got it wrong and they should be accountable for their actions.

If this natural process is interrupted by printing money from thin air to postpone an upcoming crisis then no one learns the lesson. Here are some examples of how money in circulation has increased dramatically over the past 30 odd years:
