What do you think of when the word 'currency' is brought up? Our paper dollar? If so, we have forgotten the long accepted thought that our currency was what value these 'dollars' had, for instance the gold/silver. Gold and silver gave our dollar value and gave our work in terms of dollar value. It was the reason why our dollar was stronger than other currencies. Inflationary forces were minimized and the market was growing on a natural and stable rate. Then why did we go off? We will be discussing this and the growing welfare state in the United States. There have been talks of extending unemployment benefits even further? When are we going to sit and discuss the issue at hand? We will go over this and much more on this episode of Insane Government.
