Praise Mao and may Stalin collectivize your vegetable garden.

Our glorious central planners have succeeded in doing what all good socialists dream of doing, expanding wealth redistribution to the poor and rich, while bleeding the middle class dry.

The economic central planners, who plan how much America should save by adjusting the interest rates, have decided that no one should ever save money again!

To accomplish this task, they have printed trillions upon trillions of dollars, driven interest rates down to zero, and have encouraged the federal government to spend until there is nothing left in the American economy to buy.

These gross distortions of market forces wreaked upon the unsuspecting public by the central planners have caused a massive misallocation of resources. Tens of millions of people must lose their jobs as the economy attempts to restructure itself into producing productive goods and services that people actually need.

During this adjustment, millions upon millions have been driven into bankruptcy, fired from their jobs, and have had their retirement accounts gutted; all the while the central planners made money hand over fist from the cheap rates and bailouts.

Economic central planning does not work.

It didn't work in the Soviet Union.

It didn't work in the EU.

It didn't work in Africa.

It didn't work in the past history of the United States.

And its not working, nor will it ever.

Learn why the central planners are your worst enemy:
