PC LOAD LETTER: urban.derelict: //END THE FED

Yeah, destroy the thing that's prevented us from being destroyed. And replace it with the exact thing the fed was created to save us from. farking history, how does it work?

I want these people to find one world power in history that did not control their currency through either policymakers or a central bank through either by fiat or manipulation of the supply and demand of the commodity backing the currency.

Whatever you choose to do, the government will still want the power to control the currency because the alternative is so much worse for everyone. Do you prefer it be a bunch of retired bankers who are semi-accountable for the economy chugging ahead or do you want to obscure it so that anyone with significant enough wealth can manipulate our currency by cornering the market?

Gonz: That may be. And if that happens, then the economy of China also implodes, due to the loss of its primary trading partner. The EU and major SE Asian nations are caught up in the collapse, which leads to, among many other things, the global demand- well, ability to pay for- oil cratering. And Iran, which isn't doing too hot economically at the moment anyway, suddenly becomes a post-apocalyptic, distopian society.

That, or the Fed prints a bit more money and we deal with the mild heartburn of inflation. One or the other.

Basically, yeah.

It's in the interests of the world economy that the US not fall, because, quite literally, if we fall, everyone falls.

Iran will go first judging by the effect the sanctions are having.
