    Fuck trickle down economics. If we gave each individual $17,000 dollars, we would have spent the same amount of money and consumer spending and GDP would have improved much more than giving money to banks to use for bad assets.

    That is not fair or true. 91% of Americans were opposed to the idea of invading Syria. And that is with the burden of being educated in a system that would have them believe there are 2 ways – the American way; and the wrong way. I believe the general population is waking up and deserves much more credit than you give them. I am Canadian, by the way.

    I don’t know which is more disheartening. Your remark; or the fact that 10 others “like” it. You may not consider a statement like that to be sweeping, but it is. And it’s much more than that – it is erroneous, racist, useless and, ultimately, it is harmful. More hate mongering will get us precisely where we don’t want to go – further down. You cannot find a time in human history when fear has helped anything. And that is all hatred is – a form of fear.

    the pure american Ron Paul is not going to put up with that jewish bullshit. Unfortunately he is one of the only elected (former now) congressman that understands pure capitalism.

    Ron Paul was very facetious here and ended up looking pretty silly. Bernanke held his own very well.

    I’ll give you that Bernake is an asshole, but you can’t blame all Jews for his assholery just because he’s Jewish. Wake up and realize that this issue isn’t about his religious affiliation.

    How can you be so ignorant as to blame an entire race/religion of people for the words of one man?

    What a deeply disturbing comment. This type of hatred leads to the destruction of humanity, not the survival of it. Can’t you see that the problems with the government, banking, media, law, military, corporations, advertising, and schools involve people of all religious backgrounds, all ethnic backgrounds, and all other kinds? Even if we were to throw all the Jews in jail these positions would be taken over by some non-Jew douchebag. Assholes are assholes whether they’re Jews or not.

    Pretty much. Monetary policy becomes obsolete under a gold standard. You can’t just snap your fingers and make gold, they would have to ship it. Internationally, countries w/ trade deficits, governments would be forced to contract their money supply, which would be deflationary which helps w/ the trade deficit but comes w/ the cost of unemployment at home. Gold standard would work until shock from some sort of business cycle crises. As Minsky would say stability creates instability

    You seem to be dumb because you are comparing 1971 to 2013. Gold was $400 in 2006. I wonder what happened shortly after that time that would cause gold to skyrocket….Hmmm can you think of anything? Obama the commie, you lose credibility and prove you don’t know shit when you make a statement like that. Better luck next time

    That kind of bullshit tears us all apart. Know your enemy, it isn’t a race of people but an idea. Money over life is the problem.

    LOL ok, I admit the going back to the gold standard now would completely F us up. But isn’t one of the big reasons the government moved away from hard money was because it’s inelasticity created limitations on it’s ability to create immediate capital?

    Holy shit, so you could say you have a PhD from Youtube University? You watched multiple Alex Jones and PatriotUSA propaganda videos and now you are an expert, huh? Riddle me this, are all federal assets “money” ? Just because they have a stockpile of gold, doesn’t mean it is money you dumb fuck. Yes it has VALUE but its not fucking money. Is your house money, just because your daddy could sell it and get some 1′s and 0′s in his bank account for it??

    Lol yea, gold lost 30% of its value earlier this year. Good thing we didn’t elect Ron Paul and have our currency pegged to it. Thanks for the lesson though, jackass
