The real tragedy is that the Federal Reserve’s superpower is creating money rather than creating wealth.  If they can only create money, the screw the very most vulnerable among us: the poor, the citizens of foreign nations which use US currency as their only real money, pensioners on a fixed income without the option of returning to the workforce.


There is good reason why they can’t just print money based on nothing.  We can’t manufacture wheelbarrows fast enough.
