The new (Federal Reserve) law will create inflation whenever the trusts want a period of inflation. . . they figure they can unload the stocks on the people at high prices during the excitement and then bring on a panic and buy them back at low prices. . . The people may not know it immediately, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed"
- Charles A. Lindberg - united States Congressman (1907 to 1917)
