DON'T YOU WISH YOU HAD A PRINTING PRESS?
Once again Chairman Bernanke comes to the rescue by stating that he wants to keep interest rates low forever. Not a problem Ben, just keep printing money until it's worthless. As a private citizen of the U.S. you're not allowed to have a printing press to print money, there's a reason for that, it's against the law. It seems to me that Bernanke and the Fed are pretty much doing what they want, and who cares if the money just keeps going down and down and down. The government has been pushing the dollar lower for years. One major concern I have is that you cannot remain a superpower for long with a fiat currency.
Fiat money originated in 11th century China, and its use became widespread during the Yuan and Ming dynasties.The Nixon Shock of 1971 ended the direct convertibility of the United States dollar to gold. Since then all reserve currencies have been fiat currencies, including the U.S. dollar and the Euro.
Next challenge …
