"...with federal officials almost universally captured by elite influences of the financial sector, nearly every government action and observable current event are most notable, not for their consistency with classical economic principles, but for violation of those principles."
Wayne explains that the economic policies of the Dark Ages (500 yrs) was based off of a system of mercantilism. This was an engineered economic system of constraint that impoverished the middle class and common people. Its backbone being the inner circle of those who kept monarchies in power. Those constraints handicapped the growth of the 13 colonies up through and beyond the War of Independence and remain present into 2017. He traces this stronghold to a 1971 landmark policy that has crippled the US Dollar and undervalued it by a staggering 97%. The classical economic principles that worked so well with the politic rights of common people to develop a strong Middle Class have all but been stripped and dissolved.
