Oh stop! First off, the Great Depression was caused by a deregulation of banks. The housing bubble bust was also caused by the same thing. Then laying BOTH world wars at the feet of central banking is just dishonest. There were more factors involved than just that that caused those wars. Same with the Cold War and Vietnam War.

In 1914 there was not enough gold backed money in the world to borrow for WW1. Gold is limitedin amount and so gold backed money is limited. Fiat money is infinite, and fiat money was used to pay for WW1. Without fiat money, WW1 would have stopped in 1915 for lack of gold to pay for it. Germany would have won and went home, France would have paid millions or not, no Russian Revolution, and WWII never would have happened.
