A photo I took in DC showing the cornucopia of the Federal Reserve
Our elites have done various things over the years that created the present economic mess. They did all these things in order to make themselves richer and more powerful but this process has destroyed the US economic base and many of our manufacturing cities lie in smoldering ruins today thanks to stupid policies. It all began with the Vietnam War and politicians hiding the real cost of that war via printing money. To do this, Nixon and Burns cut the gold standard. To fix the following hyperinflation, free trade was instituted whereby the US now imports more and more manufactured goods, this in turn, killed our cities and laid waste to the working class that once manufactured goods.
