The free market is a myth like the invisible hand and Jesus.

Reading these comments is absolutely hilarious. People are blaming free market capitalism for this problem when free market capitalism hasn't existed since the creation of the federal reserve system. Also people are confusing capitalism with corporatism and capitalism with feudalism. It's extraordinary. Here is some advice, go listen to a millionaire or billionaire that preaches about how good socialism or communism is while they already funneled all their money off shore or to non profit foundations that they control. Lol. After decades of unlimited information you would think people would learn that being free is the answer but no, they… Read more »

They drove interest rates down to 0 so the sheeple would borrow and further enslave themselves to the Jews.

Donald Trump knows nothing about macroeconomics just like he knows nothing about geopolitics, history, law and government.

Trump knows the Fed is linked to the enemies of humanity

Usury is embraced in the Bible, but only upon Gentiles, and not Jews:

In Deuteronomy 23:20, we read:

Unto a stranger [foreigner, i.e. Gentile] thou mayest lend upon usury;  but unto thy brother [fellow Jew] thou shalt not lend upon usury.

Ron Paul is an idiot. THe natural rate of interest would be ZERO due to excessive reserves in the banking system from federal govt spending. Federal Reserve intervenes to prevent it from being zero by doing monetary policies of buying and selling Assets and bonds in the 2ndary market.

Interest rates are money for the lender banksters… When banks paid zero for fed 💰, to spur the economy, all those years they didn't pass that zero on to consumers who could barely get a loan, the borrower had to pay 3% … So, the big banks not only got BAILED OUT by the peoples tax money 💵, they were PROPPED UP all those years by the zero interest rate money they got ~ They then turned around and charged 3% on that loaned money to main street … Meanwhile no one was getting interest on their savings, even though… Read more »

When stock goes up too fast, the Fed has to temper it a bit. Isn't it commonsense?

I watched a video a week or two ago saying that there was something planned for October 10th and telling people to brace themselves as it's the way the 1% scoops wealth from the people. Driving economies into a recession does the same and its planned with banks and other large companies. There was something leaked about it.

The "Market" cant be a determinant factor when you have Socialism for the rich and capitalism for the poor. I hope all billionaires eventually have to work for minimum wage. That would be true capitalism.

"Free market" is a myth, a foolish concept. It is based on competition, and competitors seek to limit each other's freedom to act on the market.
If the core is unenlightened, you get unenlightened results.
Ron Paul is a bit too stuck in his belief that his ideas are a solve-all.

If Trump audits the Fed, he would gain enormous respect. He'd be messing with some powerful people though. Might go the way of Kennedy.

Raising interest rates should be a good thing in a normal honest world. Because borrowing money that doesn't exist should never have been legal. But we all know who pushed for central banks in the world. Raising the interest rate exposes the truth about the state of the economy.
