Without endless printing of paper money by the Fed — in other words if the money supply was limited by some sort of commodity-backed currency — the warfare state, the military-industrial complex, the wealthy Beltway think-tankers would see their power slip away like sand through fingers. Sound monetary policy and a peaceful foreign policy go hand in hand and must not be ignored.
