There is truth in your points.
Presidents are only victims of the circumstances that they had inherited and find ways out of the situation, often unpopular or time consuming that
lead to citizenry impatience for immediate cures.
Bankers and the many of the rich with OBSCENE amounts of cash are the bane of our world's mess.
Do not get me wrong, I do admire their often struggles, espacically the first generation whom had succeeded, but with excessive greed comes excessive
corruption of the mind, to protect, maintain and project their wealth upon the rest of humanity.
At it's basic core, the fed is made up of private individuals whom have excessive cash, had initially sought to find returns for their savings by
offering loans. Overtime, it is no more than a loan shark enterprise, offering and even directing where funds can be spent with total disregard to
human lives and civilisation. Money was pushed out to ensure returns.
As such, with excessive funds, inflation, greed and speculation occured from those secondary few up on the ladder of wealth to become like the
original group, and thus the crisis today since 08.
But in all honesty, they had learnt much from the sobering disasters of 08, and realized that mistakes had been made, and tried to correct it by
offering low or even no interest funds to central banks in return for stability.
It is too late and not enough being done by that group. More can and needs to be done today and for future stability.
May they realize that we humans came with nothing and will leave with nothing anyway, except our deeds remembered with fondness for the good we do, or
spat upon by generations for the harm we had done.
