    I'd put these troop withdrawals in the damned if you do, damned if you don't category. The only thing that smells at all is the timing.

    Trump has been something of a peace dove, rather than a war hawk.

    1. Making and keeping peace with N. Korea.
    2. Making peace between Israel and a number of ME countries. (a huge deal)
    3. Troop withdrawals.
    4. No new wars (that I can recall). This is actually quite rare for a President.

    I don't have a beef with him for that. Blessed are the peacemakers after all.

    I would put the entire Trump 4 years into that category.

    I see you have a strong faith in Keynesianism.

    Economic growth != money supply growth, there is no causative relationship either.

    Businesses do need money to expand but that is logically separate from needed to print new money.

    Commodity money is only nuts to adherents to the monetarist cathedral.

    All money was linked to precious metal throughout history and in the US until 1971. The whole modern economy was built with commodity money. Economic growth rates and labor wage growth has stagnated since 1971. That is historical fact. All the economic historical analysis points this out.

    Every case where a country quickly expands money supply leads to immediate economic ruin. Look at the 1930s Europe.

    Every case where a country expands money supply significantly leads to stagnation. Look at Japan.

    The government is stealing your wealth dude. The lower socio economic status the worse the theft is.

    I’d rather listen to our economics department. Although I doubt any of them post here.

    Even Milton friggin Friedman* opposed a return to the gold standard.

    Y’all have entered Lyndon LaRouche territory. I guess this would be the thread to do so... :yes:

    Milton Friedman was okay, but pretty horrible on monetary theory/policy.

    This is about Adam Smith, Dave Ricardo, Jean Baptiste Say, Bastiat, Bohm-Bawerk, Mises, Hayek, Hazlitt, etc.

    Weak smear.
