    if you were close to me, I wouldn’t waste my time in explaining to you that the Fed has a lot to do with the economic collapse and the standard was gold, no I wouldn’t do that, I would fucking lock you up as you are stopping the U.S from becoming democratic because of how stupid u are.

    Ron Paul is so ignorant. Every asset can be used as money, diamonds as well. And I hear all you guys talking about how bad everything has went since the establishment of the FED. you guys are so ignorant, look around you. See what wealth we have create in these 99 years since, young people nowadays have ipods, BB´s etc and you´re still telling me FED hasn´t given us (financial) stability nor economic progress? Go and read some history books.

    If you have reduced the purchasing power of the dollar by 98% since the inception of the FED in 1913 that leaves 2% of relative purchasing power in today’s dollars. Now take the remaining 2% ( consider that 100% of what the currency is currently worth ) , all of the money that is currently sitting in banks as a firewall against contagion and not in circulation yet , all of the leverage in the system , and calculate inflation with an honest metric , you might be surprised at what you find.

    Ron Paul thinks the value of the dollar has devalued 50% in the past three years? Man that guy is stupid.

    Has anyone ever noticed that whats “in” never lasts.. and whats not eventually becomes “in”.. History REPEATS itself. Also has anyone ever figured that money and being greedy just isn’t everything? How about the idea of excepting science and realizing that we are lucky to even be here and with that deriving a strong moral character that is able to function soundly with or without a lot of money? I THINK THAT PEOPLE ARE BEING WOKEN UP BY THE TUSSLE BETWEEN THE MOVIES AND REALITY.There’syouandme..

    Watch as the fear of default spreads! A forest fire starts as a spark then moves from branch to branch. Greece will be spared for a few months, but wait behind us Spain is burning! Portugal is catching fire! Quick put out Italy.. or else we all go up in flames!! Central banks will seek to divert the flames. The media will be in shock! Scapegoats will be found, but still paper will BURN! From the ashes a pheonix will rise: GOLD! History will repeat itself and the masses will watch in disbelief!

    Ever heard of LTRO? Europe has a choice like most developed nations in the world today do. Either take some short term pain now or apocalyptic pain later. You CAN’T get out of debt by the accumulation of more debt. The world is not going to GROW it’s way out of fiscal insolvency. So your statement suggests that austerity and “tightening” won’t work for the US. What would you suggest then sir, because the only other option is inflation. Increased taxes won’t do it. Cut or print. That’s it.

    It’s funny cause it says Ron Paul questions Ben Bernanke but all I hear is Ron Paul speaking. And all that austerity and tight money Ron Paul wants really worked out for Europe right?

    And before you start your explanation with, “we have the world’s reserve currency” and “if inflation were a problem the FED would simply raise rates”. Let me answer by saying that, 1) if the FED were to raise our interest rates 1 basis point our current debt service would increase $140 billion for every point. This would quickly bankrupt us. And 2) numerous countries are already exploring alternatives to the dollar’s dominance. Read BRICS, China, India, Iran, and Russia. This… is….dangerous.

    According to Bernanke the FED purchase of treasury bonds doesn’t increase the money supply i.e. his talk of “sterilized” purchases. As we know, the definition of inflation is an increase in the money supply. Simple supply and demand. If you have more of something it is worth less. My question is this; if you devalue a currency for (+) exports, keep rates of borrowing artificially (-), and stimulate consumption, at what point do you destroy the currency via inflation?

    Your assumption is that ZIRP results in increased lending to the private sector to stimulate consumption. This is right AND wrong. It results in gross distortions of the marketplace and misallocation of capital and resources with the small amounts that do reach the private sector. Predominately, this money never reaches the private sector but is in fact utilized by the banking system to purchase treasuries which are flipped back to the FED for est. 0.25% interest to facilitate deficit spending.

    Assets are an economic resource check. Money is a medium of exchange check. After this you approach incorrect. Economy bad OR good results in FED intervention in the treasury market unless nominal GDP is > 4% ( which is what our incredibly optimistic budget projections require to maintain solvency ).

    around the same rate of inflated prices. But with your other statement on “science to look for other ways” first science /= economics using an atom fuser that can create gold would only decrease value and basically fabricate it thus contradicting you idea on opposing fabricated currency. Money will be money really its what investors and banks decide to put “money”(although broad term) into that will either help or kill a currency but fiat has failed numerous times in the past and rises metals
