There is great hope that tech will bring local bureaucrats and crony capitalists if not to heal, at least more into the light in a big way, soon. We are at the beginning of a transformation. (Let’s hope.) As data becomes more and more available, and search engine tools become better and more intuitive, citizens are going to increasingly audit the books of their home towns.
Indeed. End the Fed.
Sounds so radical doesn’t it? Isn’t the Federal Reserve there to smooth out the economy, to stabilize the currency? To make sure the world doesn’t blow up?
What if I told you that it doesn’t smooth out the business cycle, but exacerbates it. That the dollar has lost 95% of its value since the establishment of the Federal Reserve. And that the world has “blown up” multiple times under the Fed regime? The world is worse for having the Fed in it.
As we’ve written before, the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS should concern anyone with a political opinion. All it takes is a change in leadership and suddenly one’s group might find itself on the wrong end of an audit.
Or it might just take one overzealous Senator with a control issue, as was the case with Diane Feinstein and the Marijuana Policy Project.
If we can’t end it tomorrow, at the very least it should be audited completely.
Sadly, it’s that time of year again. The big bill. A little help (maybe) from The Wall Street Journal.
Things are so out of whack that the Government Accountability Office can’t even do a “good enough for government work” audit of the government’s books.
Critics of crony capitalism are found on both the left and right. This creates a very interesting alliance. For example, left and right work together to audit the Fed. We can also audit each other’s ideas for factual accuracy.
