The banks have been doing whatever it takes to steal money from us working stiffs since they were created. The shift from gold/silver to imagination just made it that much simpler.
We narrowly escaped having our banking system integrate with World Bank in 2008. I would be surprised if it didn’t happen next time the bastages in control manipulate us toward a currency crisis. I was in Thailand during theirs in 1997. Things were not pretty. We really don’t want that in the US.
