  • King decides to drop his mandate to slow boil the slaves. Of course, the central bank claims to attempt to control inflation with one hand whilst it brings it on with the other. Infact, the role of a central bank is the inflate the currency, to fund government and corporate largess, at the expense of we the people.

    Henry Hazlitt (1964)
