“There have been three great inventions since the beginning of time: The fire, the wheel and central banking.” -Will Rogers (American humorist and showman, 1879-1935)

Being a man of the times, I’m more partial to Bic lighters, bicycles and the Internet. Nevertheless, I can’t deny that central banking is good to those who run the show; three cheers for fractional reserve lending! Corruption and politics aside, I love the Fed because their Reserve Notes smell good, look pretty under UV, and are accepted in any Banana Republic or war zone.
