You tell me. How do endless rounds of creating loans/debt/currency without creating the currency to repay the loans plus interest, so that the interest must be paid with currency created in another round of loans benefit anyone or anything besides the bankers?

How is QE3 anything but the Fed buying the future of all Americans on the installment plan?
And I'm asking you how will going back to having our currency backed by gold going to prevent this. Because the gold standard hasn't prevented economic crashes, in fact it make things worse. I don't think your problems with the Fed is solved by going back to a gold standard, I think you problem lies in just the privatization of currency creation. Nothing more, nothing less.
