A weekly column
The Dangers of Neo-Conservative Economic Policies


The dangers inherent in the foreign policy advocated by the neo-conservatives are well known. While many Americans have become increasingly aware of those dangers, far less attention has been focused on the dangers of neo-conservative economic policies. This issue is of critical importance right now, because many are mistakenly pointing their fingers at the free market as the culprit behind our current economic plight.

He is basically saying that a lot of the Neo-Conservative are going the wrong way...
Conservative and his political party doesnt want what a small but powerfull group wants.. conservatives and neo-conservative are not the same thing...
He wants our government to be small and not interfere with capitalism... He wants free trade.. and Neo-Conservative wants a small government but controlling all of the free trade...
At the end,,, neo-cons are not really neo-cons

Fiat money isn't the problem; it's the ABUSE of the abilities of a fiat money system that's the problem. Going back to the gold standard will remove a lot of the control we have over the economy. Limiting the power of the Fed is the answer.

The power of the Federal Reserve is limited.

Most of you incessantly whine about the low interest rate policy from the Federal Reserve. If interest rates are too low, then it is incumbent on the US Congress to raise taxes and/or slash federal spending, and/or reduce the money supply.

Why hasn't the US Congress performed its duties?
