Title: Central banking
Post by: Giuliano Taverna on April 21, 2009, 10:10:16 pm
I'm split minded about this issue, I used to find Austrian arguments compelling but recently my increased understanding of anti Semitic conspiracy theories regarding evil bankers lead me to question the legitimacy of the disturbingly similar arguments now being made by such fringe demagogues as Ron Paul and Denis Kucinich.

So I did some minor digging and I found this,

And with my knowledge of history and the preeminence of banking institutions in successful empires, Venice, Brittan, and now America. and some digging on the panics that lead to the formulation of the fed, and my own personal fondness for banking.

I am now starting to lean heavily in favor of the fed, albeit with more oversight and transparency.

What do you think?

I selected "no it's unnecessary and unconstitutional" and I think I've already explained in detail my reasoning for that stance at least to you. ;) :P

This might be my forum, but I'm not the only person here.
