    Well he finally explained it all. It's everybody's fault except the banks and when Roosevelt went off the Gold Standard and started the FDIC the number of bank defaults went from over 4000 per year to zero. :hmmmm2:

    Thank You Ben.

    Oh and the reason why it didn't make sense to have a gold standard is that it took too much effort to dig the gold up from Africa and bring it to the US, just to place it in another hole (Vault) in the US.:goodnight:

    Only because I haven't listened and watched it yet. . . did he really make such a judgement? Or are you being sarcastic in regards to Bernacles's wise arguments against a gold standard (some sarcasm here btw)?
