Inflation since the American Revolution. Key events: Creation of the Fed (1913) and Nixon’s cancelling the direct convertibility of the United States dollar to gold (1971.) “Since that time, America has seen a period of non-existent real wage growth and a huge gap grow between the rich and the poor ever since.” Which the pols propose to “cure” with more of the same. “Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value – zero.” – Voltaire

END THE FED!!

None of this stuff matters though, the politicians won’t do a thing, they’ll just let the dollar collapse and consolidate more power for themselves when it happens. We’re so screwed.
