I know there are like 50 END the fed threads on ET. but hey what is one more. The one thing all these threads have in common. Is there is no alternative. I have yet to hear a credible alternative to the FED. I am not a fan of the FED, I won't cry if switch to another system. but I am getting very annoyed with this END the FED movement its bordering on cult like mania. Petitions books, everyone at the FED is an evil banker looking to steal from the average joe. I hear Greenspan bathes in the blood of Walmart employees to keep his looks. Ok. What is the alternative to the FED. I have yet to see one proposal or credible alternative to our current Central Bank, that will eliminate the END the FED complaints: 1) Continuing inflation of the currency 2) Secret bankers in charge of our money supply. 3) elimination of booms and busts. 4) Debt based economy. Keep in mind the following realities 1) We need a stable money supply and banking sector 2) We are currently a reserve currency. Whatever scheme do we come up with needs to satisfy the world that we are still a reserve currency, and will work to meet the global demand for dollars. Also, Don't give me the gold standard as a reply. Thats like saying we should give constitutional monarchy a try again.
