“Go West, young man” was a popular admonition of the post-Civil War United States, when the Transcontinental Railroad, industrialization, and millions of enterprising settlers moved across the vast territory of the country toward the Pacific Ocean, thus fulfilling the historic vision of the founders of the American Republic to establish a continental republic on these shores.

Banks and financial institutions have proven that they control governments, and not the other way around. As a result, speculators are making more money than ever before, and the free fall of the real economy continues. The problem must be brought under control by the strict separation of commercial banks from investment banks.
