Inside the Fed Just like the govt.: develop a program on someone's whim (without proper research) spent countless dollars putting the whim into production when it's clear the program is a bust, the logical choice is to ... keep it going because the funding is still there. I like how they make worthless money to look like gold or silver to make dopes think they actually have something in their pocket. Imagine giving one of these to Apu at your local stop-n-rob...he looks at it, and hands it back: fake money, no thank you. I can't say as I blame him.
