  1. So a depression happens because people are too naive to know how to handle money and then complain because they don't know it was their fault in the first place.

  2. So banks make credit(the equivalent of money) out of thin air….nice.

    So we give up our hard earned tangible assets as collateral for their pixie dust….

    "Hmm let's make sure this guy is creditworthy so we can type up some numbers in our computer, to lend to him"…

    Wtf…and people bow and scrape to these con artists so they can steal from their future selves to profit these crooks.

    The fact this is legal makes it obvious who truly runs the show.

  3. I still do not understand the idea of printing money. Where does it go? If the government is printing money, does it not create more debt on top, since it goes out directly to banks and then into the borrowers hands?
