He makes a tremendous amount of sense when he talks about the problems caused by the Federal Reserve’s actions that are destroying, rather than helping, economic growth. Here’s a link to his interview. http://online.wsj.com/article/9479099C-64D5-4E47-B377-A05598DE0BAB.html#!9479099C-64D5-4E47-B377-A05598DE0BAB
