Phony Money :: Crash From 'Unsustainable' Fed-Fueled Bubble

The U.S. economy is in a bubble inflated by “phony money” from the Federal Reserve and will burst within a few years, warned David Stockman, who was budget director for President Ronald Reagan. In an essay published in the New York Times, Stockman wrote that the Fed’s quantitative easing policies in the aftermath of the credit crisis have flooded stock markets with cash even while the “Main Street economy” remains weak.

Stunning Facts About How the Banking System Really Works … And How It Is Destroying America

Reclaiming the Founding Fathers’ Vision of Prosperity To understand the core problem in America today, we have to look back to the very founding of our country. The Founding Fathers fought for liberty and justice. But they also fought for a sound economy and freedom from the tyranny of big banks: “[It was] the poverty caused by the bad influence of the English bankers on the Parliament which has caused in the colonies hatred of the English and . . . the Revolutionary War.” - Benjamin Franklin “There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation.
