Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Speaking of warts -- despite having defied the Supreme Court and having 'relocated' the Indian Nations to Oklahoma, including some of my ancestors, in violation of treaty obligations, on the subject of the National Bank Andrew Jackson was dead on. Good arguments have been made for having a National Bank, but the manner in which all to date have operated is a weak justification at best. We need some form of national bank, but ensuring that it operates in the interest of more than a few very wealthy people is a fundamental problem that remains. I do not believe that we will get out of the current crisis without making substantial progress in establishing a national central bank that is run in the interests of the majority of the citizens.
