Nomi Prins-`All the Presidents Bankers`.

Nomi Prins worked in the belly of the beast in Goldman-Sachs, she knows her stuff.  You watch this 15 minute video and understand it, you`ll be far more in the know than most that have graduate degrees in economics, due to Nomi`s condensed manner of speaking.

Isn't it ironic that the banking and monetary system that progressives adore so much is also responsible for the concentration of wealth/income inequality that they complain so much about?

It's so confounding that someone as obviously intelligent and as informed as you obviously are can struggle so much with definitions unless it's intentional obstuficaton or disingenuousness The historical Progressive movement came into being as a response to banking as it is now. But in reality there're probably about as many genuine progressives out there as there are Austrian gold bugs.

Don`t know where you`re going Bruce but fed was created in 1913  http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/12/21/the-federal-reserve-was-created-100-years... 

 

and TR was prez 1901-1909 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidency_of_Theodore_Roosevelt   1913-1909=4 yrs.  Nomi glosses over that not mentioning much of Wilson, suggesting that TR and Morgan made the deals well before...maybe?   But Wilson signed it.
