As opposed to what's happening now?
The economy continues to fall. Employment rates continue to rise. International standoffs continue as nothing much has changed regarding our policy
(other than pulling troops from Iraq and placing them in Afghanistan).
You can't say things would be much worse or much better. The only thing you could say for sure is that they'd be DIFFERENT.
I think Ron Paul could have salvaged the economy. When the price of oil can skyrocket because a hurricane MIGHT hit a refinery - I think just WANTING
to solidify the value of the dollar by backing it with something would have been enough to ease foreign investors. But, that's just my opinion ...
like I said, no one can know anything for sure.
But, a naive view of the world is thinking that dissolving the Federal Reserve would result in anything negative regarding our economy or thinking
that bringing our troops home would somehow hurt the U.S.
