Take away the Federal Reserve and let's see what happens. This whole thing is a joke and will be very destructive in the end. Do you really think China, Russia, India etc. and the rest of the world is just going to sit back and let the U.S. print their way to prosperity? There is going to be a harsh wake up call coming. The Bitcoin is already gaining popularity, it isn't backed by anything but wait until a legitimate currency that is backed by gold and/or silver emerges, this U.S. dollar party is over.
