The economic policy of the US is currently controlled by a group of 1%ers who cannot be held accountable by the public. The policy makers at the FED are given a wide birth because they are protected under the ruse of national security per Executive Order 12333 (1981).
The only way to take power back from the 1% is for our elected officials to remove this task from the Federal Reserve and place it in the hands of people who can be held accountable through democracy and the vote. Especially the area of economics surrounding inflation policy, leverage controls and limits.
Controlling leverage is the most powerful tool our government could have in controlling inflation, risk, and how much the bankers can make off the backs of the working class.
You may be surprised to discover how many people only halfheartedly support change once you begin discussing this with them. One because this is a real solution and not just the typical noise. Secondly because they themselves may hold investments that will see smaller returns if the economy were structured to fairly compensate the working class.
