I too hope that LME keeps writing.
If anyone wants to learn how the current money came to be and the history of money and banking, , William (Bill) Still produced an excellent documentary entitled "The Money Changers" back in the early 90's. This can be viewed on you tube and from www.freedocumentaries.org
or bought from Amazon. In my opinion it should be required study at all schools. The best history lesson I ever had.
When I first viewed this doco I could hardly believe it and was moved to buy his book from which the doco was made. He is a very thorough researcher and highly respected today.
The history lesson the doco showed me was far more exciting than the stuff they taught me in school. At school I was taught that it was the wall street crash that caused the Great Depression. In the doco I learn that it was the central banksters withdrawal of the money supply and their financing of Hitler which actually caused millions of Americans to starve to death in the Depression.
Did you know that Winston Churchill was standing on the trading floor in Wall street the day it went down? He had been invited to watch it unfold....
If you just want to cut to the chase on how US money is created, without the history of money and wars, and where it might be going, Mike Moloney has a good presentation and a great visual display. He also has a book on amazon, but this video is very easy to watch. he is big on precious metals, but regardless of his views, his explanation of what is happening and how it happens is on the mark.
If this doesnt get you there, you can go to you tube videos and type in "Debt Collapse - $20,000 Gold - Mike Maloney On Gold, Silver & Economics"
