    You people know nothing about capitalism. The government is the issue, and they have tried to destroy capitalism for a long *** time. Enough with the rules and regulations, they've ****ed everything up since the 1920s

    I think it started before that with the creation of the federal reserve. but yes, that is correct in my eyes

    Was the Fed reserve created before that? Beats me, totally didn't know. But supposedly everyone praises FDR meanwhile his New Deal was a piece of ****.

    Especially when the government wanted to regulate the railroad industry and from there it just got worse.

    i should point out that the federal reserve is not a government agency, but the creation of it allowed the reserve to make money out of nothing. it's really a total control of an entire country's economy

    We may be dealing with semantics here, but the Fed chairman IS appointed by the President.
    But the Fed is an independant agency. It is however....an arm of government.
