Thoughts I had on reading a paper about monetary policy

Hold on. The recession was all the Fed and ECB’s fault and had nothing to do with the “barons of Wall Street”? That we’re calling them barons, first of all, suggests they might be more involved than you are willing to admit. 

Why would the Fed pass their recommendations by Congress? The Fed are supposed to be the experts. Congress is a bunch of clowns.

Letting the markets run free without any kind of government intervention whatsoever would require people to make too many major changes in the way they live and eat for that to be more than a theory.

So…you’re saying the government is controlling interest rates and inflation…through the media.

I would trade half of Congress for Alexander Hamilton back.

We’re not going back to the gold standard.

We’re not going back to the gold standard.

We’re

not

going

back

to

the

gold

standard

You want a constitutional amendment to make gold the standard?! The Constitution is subject to interpretation and you want to embed monetary policy into that document. Great idea.

No but really, can someone bring Hamilton back?
