NX and FX – Economics

My personal idea of economic hell would include a return to the gold standard, a balanced budget amendment, and the elimination of the Federal Reserve Board. (My understanding of economics is that such a situation would have turned the 2008 crash into another Great Depression, in which case we would have lost the condo long before the flood got it.)

For some people, that’s their idea of economic heaven. The following article discusses efforts to eliminate the Fed (FRB); compare and contrast the conservative positions it mentions with the other positions it mentions (both less economically conservative as well as liberal). Then run a compare and contrast with the second article on the ECB (European Central Bank). Voila! – An economics lesson in two articles.

Conservatives have failed to end the Fed, but they’re not giving up hope
