While Ron Paul has been accused of having lost his marbles as I often have in the last 9 months, he asked THE QUESTION. "Who is in charge of the US Dollar"?
Of course Paulson's answer was fully loaded with both the stutter and lack of content as I am painfully getting used to hearing.
Paul's statement (within his question) included the lack of a US Savings Rate, negative real interest rates, re-regulation, and Federal Reserve inspired inflation.
Sometimes the guys who sound like they have a few screws loose, are the only guys with a screwdriver.
We fix this mess by raising interest rates.
