We can place booms, busts, bubbles and economic catastrophes firmly on the lap of the Federal Reserve System. Individuals such as Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke should have know better…yet they contributed to monstrous booms that finally collapsed, leaving many people’s financial and personal affairs in complete disarray.
Around the hard money camp, these “prestigious” Fed Chiefs are known by their nicknames “Bubbles” Greenspan and “Helicopter” Bernanke. I’m not sure if old Alan got his nickname from his preference for bubble baths or bubble economies. Bernanke once remarked something about tossing dollars out of helicopters.
In this article, we’re concentrating on the monetary policies of Alan Greenspan. Let’s find out if his tenure as Fed Chief violates the economic policies Objectivists believe in. Is he a traitor to Objectivism?

A person leaves school and vows he will never be subject to that torture again. The result: The disillusioned individual often drifts through life with a closed mind…and a resistance to new ideas and new ways of living. The virtues of Objectivism, reason and laissez faire capitalism remain outside of his awareness. Eventually, he (she) settles into a comfort zone of boredom and stagnation. Finally, his life becomes unsettled, filled with one crisis after another. A changing world won’t let him cling to his uninspiring routines.

Do you realize two conditions must exist in order for the majority of people embrace the sanctity of individual rights? Men and women have to adopt the virtue of rational selfishness and support the social system of laissez faire capitalism. Unfortunately, we’re saddled with the anti-life philosophy of social altruism layered with politically correct BS. What do we end up with? A mixed economy spiraling towards fascism.
Rational Selfishness and the Sanctity of the Individual’s Life, Liberty and Property
Consider this. If people no longer respect the sanctity of the individual’s life, liberty and property…how is it possible the positive emotions of love, happiness and joy can thrive? Tragically, there are too many shortsighted individuals seeking benefits without giving much in return. Our current social and economic situation confirms this fact.
Fortunately, there are rationally selfish individuals who believe in trading value for value…possessing the integrity to practice this in their everyday activities. That’s the way of the Integrated Individual. He consistently displays rational selfishness in his thoughts, feelings and actions.
Here’s what Ayn Rand says about rational selfishness.

In the last article “Should Teenagers Be Exposed to Objectivism, I pointed out that Timothy Sexton’s article “Warning: Your Teenager May Be Reading Ayn Rand” completely misrepresents Ayn Rand and Objectivism. Let’s see if he does better with his analysis of capitalism.
You may be wondering how he could possibly have a decent grasp of the marvelous social system of capitalism…since he doesn’t seem to recognize the benefits of Objectivism. Well, as we will soon see…like most social altruists and progressives he just doesn’t get it.

Do you ever dream about coming across a money tree? Well, I’m going to have to bust your bubble. Damn…I can’t do that either. The Fed owns the only money tree and the largest monetary bubble. Unfortunately, for many people…one day the Fed’s tree will go bare and the bubble will burst. When, where and how…nobody knows.
Easy Money Addicts, the Money Tree and the Mogambo Guru
I was feeling particularly low, having sunk into a sloppy, self-pitying, tequila-fueled, drunken introspection after (again) failing to achieve blissful Nirvana, this time per my wonderful new (“Why didn’t I think of it before?”) theory, which is to finally attain true transcendence through sheer, strict gluttony.

Mastering the Social Maze means you understand the Fed attempts to block you from achieving financial independence. It exists to feed the greedy aspirations of the Elite and its Soldiers…at your expense.
Here’s Ron Paul reporting from Laissez Faire Today “President-elect Donald Trump has acknowledged that, while his business benefits from lower interest rates, the Fed’s policies hurt most Americans.
During the campaign, Mr. Trump also promised to make audit the fed part of his first 100 days agenda. Unfortunately, since the election, President-elect Trump has not made any statements regarding monetary policy or the audit the fed legislation.”

The science of Human Action soars as a deductive system that starts its reasoning with the actions of individuals. Objectivism stands tall as the philosophy of rational self-interest. It presents us with a solid, integrated system for living. Although there exists some differences in the epistemology (the theory and origins of knowledge) of Human Action (Praxeology) and Objectivism..these marvelous tools of knowledge are closely inter-related. Both realize…all thought begins with the lone individual. The Objectivist Warrior knows…the two disciplines supply him potent weapons for Mastering the Social Maze.
He considers Ludwig von Mises and Ayn Rand as the “Dad and Mom” of enlightened self-interest. Mises’ magnum opus “Human Action” reigns as the masterpiece of praxeological reasoning. Ayn Rand’s great philosophical masterpiece “Atlas Shrugged” soars as the Objectivist Bible. Although, I’m not sure if she would react favorably upon hearing…I connected the term “Bible” to her integrated system of logic and reason.

As you read every word of this report you will become stunned at what I reveal. It’s time for us to perform an analysis of the Economic Policy of Donald Trump.
Trump, Government and Business
Trump possesses a vision of building a magnificent new infrastructure…a one trillion dollar dream. Now that’s the way we expect an entrepreneur to think. Unfortunately, for him there are cause and effect relationships to consider. He’s not running a corporation or private business. The investors in his grandiose scheme happen to exist as taxpayers. These hapless men and women will pay the bill by way of a massive inflationary environment. That’s not exactly the kind of economic policy people will embrace.

Let’s define Laissez Faire Capitalism. According to Wikipedia “Laissez–faire (/ˌlɛseɪˈfɛr-/, French: [lɛsefɛʁ] ) is an economic system in which transactions between private parties are free from government interference such as regulations, privileges, tariffs, and subsidies.”
The Importance of Philosophy states “Laissez Faire Capitalism. “Laissez Faire” is French for “leave alone” which means that the government leaves the people alone regarding all economic activities. It is the separation of economy and state.”
We can also refer to this economic system as unhampered capitalism.

As you read every word of this article…you will realize the Federal Reserve System sits in first place as Public Enemy Number One. You do realize the Fed stands for the continued screwing of the honest citizen. In addition, it appears its ill-fated monetary policies may cause a global economic collapse.
When Ron Paul states we need to End the Fed, he clearly understands it creates monetary disasters. Is it any wonder the Elite and its Soldiers made sure he never became President.
Note: All their power couldn’t get Hillary Clinton elected…as Donald Trump pulls a stunning upset.
