The value of money is determined by how much (or how little) of it is in circulation. But who makes that decision, and how does their choice affect the economy at large? Doug Levinson takes a trip into the United States Federal Reserve, examining how the people who work there aim to balance the value of the dollar to prevent inflation or deflation.

  10. The one thing that I don’t understand is why did people in the past decide that the total amount of money in circulation cannot exceed the total value of gold that the government has. That doesn’t even make any sense. First of all, gold isn’t the only valuable substance. There are thousands or even millions of valuable things, including silver, aluminum, corn, tomatoes, dogs, guns, etc., so why would the amount of gold a government has be linked to the worth of money in circulation? Shouldn’t the amount of currency in circulation be based on a country’s total amount of assets + means of production + how large of a workforce of human beings of working age a country has? The U.S. government should sell all of its gold to U.S. electronics businesses to use to build things or sell it to people in other countries and then buy us all pizza with that money 😁

  14. The U.S. just keeps buying other countries products with money that they just keep printing non stop out of thin air.
    One day the world will wake up and realize "the emperor has no clothes".I wonder how the banksters that control the banking cartel we call the "FED" will shut down operations in America after they have sucked it dry and figure out how to set up a cartel in China and take over printing the Chinese yuan ?
