"Give me control over a nation's currency, and I care not who makes its laws."
– Baron M.A. Rothschild
Central banking is a curse. You can't "get it right" with monopoly fiat. You can have a free market in every facet of the economy but if the money itself is controlled, forget about it. You're doomed to recession, depression, inflation and, ultimately, social chaos and resurgent ruin. Some understand it better than others.
