Our Holy Spirit answers:
Your Federal Reserve System serves the same function as your ego. It is an artificial device which interferes with true freedom and can certainly lead to severe suffering. If you insist on holding onto such artificial devices, the best you can hope for is maximum attunement to My Voice and minimum temptation to intervene. Intellectual astuteness is never a good substitute for listening to My Voice. That said, Ben Barnanke is a fine choice.
