12. Everybody had silver in their pockets

The rich had to spend their gold and silver to get anything. America thrived on the gold system.

After slavery, the creation of the Fed and establishing an income tax are among Americas biggest blunders. The Fed was explicitly created to give the rich more wealth and power and it worked. It did not make racketeering and monopolies go away and in fact made graft by the rich easier. The Fed solved nothing and made debt slaves of the masses.
